Hi Trish and we can't tell you how much pleasure we get from hearing from someone like yourself who has finally 'discovered us'. Hopefully in time there will be fewer and fewer local people who don't know their local museum. In the meantime, welcome, and...More

Took our 4-year old granddaughter and enjoyed just as much as we did, toasting marshmellows was the highlight for her. Getting up close to the past brings it all to life for any age... never been asked so many questions. Well worth the entrance fee...More

A marvellous local museum, on the way to being outstanding after years of tight funding. Unprepossing location and an undistinguished first impression disguise first rate displays and contents in spacious and uncluttered settings.

If they have an interest in history then it would. All the displays are interactive, and I think the telephone room would be a favourite.

Yes, but as other people have said, some spaces would be a bit tight for a large buggy. Maybe a baby carrier would be easier if you have one? They have changing facilities so you should be well catered for :)
