It is a small museum but very interesting, great diplay, hood explanation with the objects that are on display. The museum has 2 floors. Only the groundfloor is wheelchair accessible (but the path is a bit narrow), the first floor is not wheelchair accessible. The staff is friendly. Dogs are allowed in.

Full of interest although a little spooky in parts, especially for those of us not keen on dead animals. Part of the museum was roped off and empty - but the admission fee (which is already low) had been reduced, perhaps to compensate - so the section on the Green Man was not available, but much else to fascinate.

Would be of interest to the teenagers as children would not understand what is it. There is a shop near it which fullfills the museum- The Other World. Nice staff to buy!

A superb diversion from the dullness of visiting English Churches; skulls, demons, potions, lotions, mummified cats, frazzled frogs; mandrake and eye-ache; everything you need to know to quickly mug-up on your supernatural skills and become a neopagan expert in one fell swoop.
