The best museum I have visited for a long time. Spacious, but packed with really interesting exhibits and information. The exhibits explaining the mining processes are the best I 've seen - simple and accurate. Wish we'd had more time to stop, but we'll be...More

This is the way museums should be. Small. Intimate. Deeply connected with its location. Clean. Attractive and, best of all informed. The small gift shop is not full of chinese tat. The staff are, without exception, knowledgeable and friendly. Don't just wait for a wet...More

The museum is very small but there is no entrance fee, just a donation box. There's a gift shop, old toy display, gem stone display with magnifier and an eye opening plastics display with information on its effect on wildlife. Worth a visit.

Called in here for a look around. It's free to visit but we left a donation. Lots of interesting things to look at. Staff were on hand to answer any questions and there were activities for children.

I can't find too much to say about this place as there is not much to say, but you will find it down a side street in the centre of town, behind Webb's Hotel, inside the tourist info. The staff and very helpful and welcoming,...More

Lovely little museum. It has 3 floors each with a different theme. The museum is run by volunteers and they are all lovely and very passionate about what they do. I loved the exhibition on plastic that washes up on the beach- very eye opening!...More
