A very interesting museum about the history of the Savings Bank. We were shown round by a very friendly curator who was also knew a lot about the history. Well worth a visit.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

All Bankers should have to visit this museum before they accept their bonuses. The guided tour is very informative and presented by very well informed and enthusiastic staff. Our visit far exceeded our expectations.

“BANKING IN A NUTSHELL”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

If you're interested in Social History or the development of Banking & Saving across the world, then this is an absolute must. The Museum is pretty tiny and because of this you get a personal tour with a wonderfully knowledgeable staff member.We had a brilliant time on our visit & spent a lovely hour or so there. Highly recommended.
