Tiny little museum but we were greeted warmly and were left to have a leisurely browse around, we had a two year old and there was a few things to keep them amused. It's worth a walk around to kill half an hour or so.

A bit of local history, seems a bit expensive at £4 entry per head for just a wee museum of 2 smallish rooms.More

It's not the British Museum, It's a small building in a remote village. The exhibits are not sophisticated. That's the bad part. If you hadn't figured the above out anyway and expected anybody else, to be brutally honest you're too stupid to go in and...More
