There's not much here but children will enjoy trying on the armour. Most won't read the informative info points. Allow 15 mins.

So it's not big and it's not sophisticated; yet it does tell a pictorial story of medieval times featuring castles, armour and weapons. It is well worth a visit, particularly if you have children, who will find it fun!

This is a great museum for young or old visitors. although it is very small its distinguishing feature is that you are encourage to play with some of the exhibits. You'll get some great photographs. Never laughed so much in a museum.
