Visited whilst on holiday a great little museum, Spent a good few hours looking round all the exhibits then visited the cafe for lunch. Initially it looks small but the upstairs is great and we enjoyed every aspect of museum and the history behind it.

This place is very interesting. Loved all the different areas. The smell is somewhat difficult to handle for a long period of time but so worth a visit.

This has something for all good exhibits and loads of hands on for the children. What makes this special is the smell! It is ingrained into the very fabric of the building, one of the best museums I have visited.
