A very interesting place to visit. Well set out with a variety of exhibitions. It's free to enter but a small donation is gratefully received. Lovely staff too.

We called in on a whim and were very pleasantly surprised. The museum is pretty small but the staff were just wonderful. They really made our visit. Some interesting stuff there - wish we had more time to explore it all. Well worth a visit.

It’s easy to find,staffed by gracious,funny and keen volunteers! It’s free. It’s full of extremely well researched and written items. Easily spend a couple of hours here and you will know more about this interesting friendly town. Well worth a visit.

A great little place, free entry but don't think it's not worth going in. Quite a lot to see in a compact facility. Extremely knowledgable curator/volunteer.
