“A good town museum”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Plenty to look at for all ages. Nostalgia for older visitors. It's in a good location with a tea room as well. Well worth visiting.

“Informative small museum”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Well worth a visit - at the moment a very poignant exhibition of WW1 memorabilia - including a very interesting little film detailing the war. Small coffee shop with tables outside - plenty to occupy children and friendly helpful staff -

“Interesting but could be better.”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Had a look around here the other day and whilst some of the exhibits are interesting it felt like it could be better. There seemed to be an awful lot of writing next to some exhibits and nothing next to others whereas I would have preferred a brief summary for each exhibit. As it is free it is worth going in for a look but that's about it.

“Museum”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Excellent timeline and good particularly on early history. Could do with more material and curation on 19th century on.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

I had coffee in the cafe in this facility as I had a small amount of time to kill. I wondered into the museum and an hour later realised I was probably going to be late for my appointment. Fasinating place although only small requires more time than you think to view it all. Will have to go back to see rest
