Can highly recommend a trip to this museum. Lots of interesting items. A particular favourite was the Victorian Schoolroom. The whole museum was extremely educational and interesting for all age groups. Staff were very helpful and well informed.

A good small town museum of the sort all small towns should have. Local history in down to earth displays. Great for children on a wet afternoon.

Such a find. Situated in a lovely house, with grounds. This in itself would be worth a visit. Also a wide range of exhibitions - there really is something for everyone. Friendly staff, with local knowledge. Clearly a much loved place. And all for free.

A little gem. Well worth a visit by the whole of the family. Free entry. Lots to see and do. Don't miss the farm exhibition outside in the grounds.
