Great for families to enjoy and learn about our history. In the museum small shop windows show what was sold in the past. Very interesting. There is a art gallery and activities for young children. Great day out.

A lovely museum celebrating local history along with a gallery. There's a little art in the gardens too along with the cannon standing guard outside the museum. They organise excellent events in school holidays.

This is a very small museum that houses a range of old fashioned things. There's a small scaled street inside with shop windows that reflect how it looked decade's ago. It's a couple of pound to get in. Nice hour or two spent in the grounds on an afternoon.
