“A small museum with a lot of interest”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

This free museum is well worth a visit. The talk by the lady in charge is most interesting.She starts with an explanation as to why Mr.Duncan initiated the very first Trustee Savings Bank in the UK and the history up to the amalgamation with the Lloyds banking group. Well worth a visit!
