Well worth a visit. This is quite a small museum but is packed with interesting information. The venue itself is the most important exhibit. An hour of your time well spent.

If you like old buildings this is somewhere to visit. Original building dating back to well King John! There is a cafe round the back, which is reasonably priced.

We had to call in and was impressed with how much history the building spans and full of information. A must see is the bone floor. So unusual. The garden was interesting as well.
