Not a large Museum, but a fascinating insight into local history. A very welcome hostess. Our visit was made more interesting by the Christmas Tree exhibition. This year 56 trees each decorated uniquely by a different organisation, school,individual family etc. Well done !

They have exhibits for the entire family. Some of the exhibits are changed frequently. There's always something new to see. We go every few months.

Made an appointment to see the Potton House while in town. Wonderful historic home that has been refurbished. Best surprise was the 2nd floor living space renovated for the children. It was outstanding! Such a nice diversion in Big Spring!
