Had so much fun at the Spider exhibit and the planetarium. The phenomena factory was a blast and the tramway museum was really interesting

Victorian Style Grand House with original fittings and floorboards fitting for a museum. The atmosphere is peaceful where one can absorb relics of the past and the present. The Art Gallery Exhibit showing paintings of Glover and others framed in ornate golden frames are fascinating.
