A small but interesting museum - worth stopping to check out the lovely building and garden. Quite a few stairs so if you have a little one either park your pram at the entrance and carry them around or bring a baby carrier.

Plan to go and check opening times. Worth seeing this building from the past and the gardens. Unusual decor and plaster work, rich wood panelling and very helpful guides to give full info.
