This visit was disappointing as there was very little to see at the Bishops house, now a museum with very exhibits. Not worth visiting

We were going to the museum but unfortunately it is closed on Mondays, so we decided to check out the Bishops house. It is a very old building with the grounds also housing several other buildings.
