We had previously been to visit this house and were passing so decided to pop in again. The last time we visited it was free but the council have now decided to charge £5 per person, so we promptly turned around and went somewhere else. This house was a gift to the local authority who seem to just want to turn it into a cash cow as the place is even more dilapidated than last time and the only change we could see since our last visit was a huge amount spent on introducing charging measures - a posh cash collecting reception, a coffee shop and souvenir shop. If they were to spend that same amount on the building itself it wouldn't be in the terrible state they have allowed it to get into. We believe all museums should be have free entry as they are part of our heritage, not corporate cash generators.
