A very interesting place to visit. Well set out with a variety of exhibitions. It's free to enter but a small donation is gratefully received. Lovely staff too.

We called in on a whim and were very pleasantly surprised. The museum is pretty small but the staff were just wonderful. They really made our visit. Some interesting stuff there - wish we had more time to explore it all. Well worth a visit.

It’s easy to find,staffed by gracious,funny and keen volunteers! It’s free. It’s full of extremely well researched and written items. Easily spend a couple of hours here and you will know more about this interesting friendly town. Well worth a visit.

A great little place, free entry but don't think it's not worth going in. Quite a lot to see in a compact facility. Extremely knowledgable curator/volunteer.

We were welcomed by a man when we went in who handed us an information leaflet and explained how to view the exhibitions starting just inside the door and following the natural walk way. The exhibition was very informative covering early years in the town...More
