Lovely little place. A good amount to look round, but can be easily done in an hour. Cafe was lovely and had good prices. All dog friendly too which is certainly a bonus.

A very interesting attraction brought to life by the well-informed and friendly staff. My young lad really enjoyed exploring the museum and listening to the very keen and friendly staff who gave a fascinating insight into some of the exhibits. Very enjoyable and educational. Thanks.
