Staff are pleasant, the museum has plenty of activities for the children. Okay to pass an hour away. It is free and a donation is greatly received.

Didn't take all that long to walk around, but it's free so can't really complain. The exhibits are interesting and tell you a bit more about local history - particularly the roman occupation.

Very well laid out exhibits, and clearly explained. Good to watch the DVD film on the history of the town. Good disabled access if needed.

Great to just wonder through, so many roman artifacts- a great collection. The Museum is free but is worth giving a donation.
