The small museum is interesting, exhibitions are hosted on the first floor. The café on the ground floor offers a good range of cakes and main dishes, service is friendly and efficient, parking on site.

This is a small museum with lots of local history and occasion special exhibition. The cafeteria is great value with simple, but good cooking.
