Many interesting photographs and equipment

This is a very interesting museum enthusiastically run by volunteers. It is filled with history of the area and one needs to spend some time examining the different rooms.
The only drawback is that it has no access for the physically challenged person and as the building is hired there are no plans for a ramp

This is a must to know the town

The Museum is funded by donations. One way of making money is to ask for donations of books - and they sell the books. The most interesting books. Also the history of various families are displayed. Worth visiting the Museum

A lovely little museum, with friendly, helpful volunteer staff. It gives a lot of information on this lovely little town. The secondhand bookshop has some great titles for sale. Entry by a small donation. Well worth it!
