Excellent day visiting this special place. Many memories of Rayleigh too in the Museum from a child. A good place to visit for Raleigh's history past and present.

Considering that there is no charge it is worth a visit. A lot of reading can be done about the history of Rayleigh etc. There is even a lift to take you up to the next floor.

Really enjoyed our visit to the museum. Very friendly helpful and knowledgable staff. A good display of local material often with relevance to the national situation throughout the times. If you live in Rayleigh or just visiting it's well worth visit.
