We went into the museum section during a visit to the Abbey. Quite small, well laid out and interesting.

The Museum keeps your interest through out and is user friendly with a disabled lift. I took us 2 hours to complete, and we learnt quite a bit

If you are interested in how photography began, then this is the place for you. It is not a large display but it is comprehensive.
