I was surprised to read the indifferent recent reviews as our party of 27 were unanimous in their enjoyment of the visit. We were met on arrival by the owner and, after coffee and a selection of delicious honey-rich cakes, he showed us round the excellent exhibition which included five live colonies of honey bees in transparent display cases. He dismantled an empty beehive to show us how it works and explained the social hierarchy of the colony and the role of the queen bee who lays 1500 eggs per day.
We spent 3 fascinating hours there browsing numerous displays and viewing an interesting video. The shop is stocked with quality bee-related merchandise, ideal for gifts, and lots of honey and mead.
I would recommend it to anyone interested in "edutainment" in a delightful rural setting. Good value all round.
