This is a small museum so you can really take your time. On the first floor there is a nice quiet cafe. We enjoyed our brief visit.

The wide variety of items on view from furniture through the ages to super size parade costumes. Fairly small so easy to get around. The cafe was rather limited however no complaints about the food or the service.
