This is a small museum but very interesting and the cost is £2 for adults £1.50 for concession and £1.50 for children and I think children under 12 are free, the staff are very knowledgable and friendly.

A small price to pay for lots of History, very helpful staff to give you the full fact should you need more than what is available, this is upstairs and is in an 1840 building
