Three pound entry to the museum. They have their own car park, but you could easily miss it as there is so much signage around! There is an eclectic mix of locally produced arts and crafts to purchase.

An interesting small museum which gives a good insight into life in the past, in Dent and the surrounding area. The scones we had with a cup of tea, tasted stale and were disappointing.
