Very impressed with the exhibitions, even though renovations are in progress at the moment. Should be even more impressive when completed. Staff were very friendly and informative. A good day out for all family members.

The museum is run by volunteers and charges a modest entry fee with no external support. So I am sorry it did not meet your expectations
