“I put a few pounds in the donation box - and hope more people will do the same for this very worthwhile museum (I also think it deserves more visitors - it really is an undiscovered gem, I feel)..”

“... way it was then We were there by accident on a Sunday and it turned out to be free to look around We often walk around the beautiful grounds but last week was the first time seeing the museum Lots to see and read”
