Interesting museum that chronicles the life of a typical railway engineer and his family during the 1930s.

A small and very well run attraction in the centre of town. Lots of items depicting the past. Railway memorabilia and maps of the area from many years ago. A contribution is all they ask. Also a small cafe for a decent cup of tea!!

It is a nice enough museum with good facts on the history of the town. However, it doesn't keep attention of young children. The scheduled activities are the only really good part.
