“Three centuries of history under one roof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Lots to see and hear in this 16th-19th century house where the downfall of King Charles I was allegedly plotted. Audio handsets are provided with reference points throughout the museum. Probably need a good hour to fully listen to all 17 audio points. There are a couple of rooms with period clothes for dressing up in which adds to the overall enjoyment.

“interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

A good place to show children a glimpse of history without them getting too bored.My girls really enjoyed playing with the toys in the victorian play room.
The only fault was that they closed at 4pm.
