This tiny Folk museum is excellent. Really worth a visit but it is very small and possibly not suited to disabled visitors. It is full of many interesting artefacts and special events like craft days, bee keeping and fossil exhibitions are often held.

What a delightful little museum in what I believe is the oldest building in town, if you visit & are 6foot plus mind your head. The volunteers who man this attraction are very knowledgeable & were a delight to meet.

Tiny but unique little place, no mod cons so a real glimpse into the past. Staff really friendly and knowledgable so kids had a great time. Great to see volunteers keeping the past alive, go visit as it's worth a trip.

Small but packed with stuff, we went with kids and there was a super little package of things to keep them entertained around the museum!

Quirky but interesting. One mans personal collection. Two floors full of all sorts of interesting ephemera. Named after Wilkie the cat. Well worth a quick visit

This may well be the smallest museum I've ever been to, but is certainly not small on content. I have lived in the area almost all of my life but don't remember ever meeting anyone else that has visited Winkies. Prior to this visit I'd...More
