Lots of efforts by volunteers and it is nice to see the jails but it is quite small in general, I was a little disappointed by the gift shop which I thought would showcase more local artists and craftsmen work.

I was expecting the museum to be a bit boring to be honest, but it was anything but! Really well laid out, friendly and welcoming staff, they didn't mind the kids being in there. Will definitely be going again on a rainy day!
