A great place to visit,a 60s memorabilia was on show, lots of items that were around in my younger days. Would recommend this to every one: Slightly overpriced, but worth it.

I stumbled across this museum when I was trying to escape the rain. The low cost of entry (£5.20) was good value for money as there were lots of interesting artefacts-and exhibits. Enjoy!
