So much to see and talk about! Super collection of memorabilia, vintage tvs and radios. Brilliant afternoon. Lovely family run museum with the added bonus of rather scummy cakes.

We were looking forward to the SCI Fi exhibition which was nothing more than a cramped room with a few poor exhibits. 'Museum' is jam packed with memorabilia which would be great if you wanted a walk down memory lane for 1/2 hour in someone...More
