this is a great stop on a rainy day - lots to discover from Banksy to palaeontology. We love stopping by and looking at a different thing each time - this time it was the Egyptology section, a great little museum.

The Museum is not massive and you can spend as short or as long as you like depending on your interests. There is plenty to see there though. I could spend a couple of hours there myself.
