My last visit was to see a small local photography exhibition, which was amazing to see in a museum! Glad they gave exposure to the artists!

Perfect for a short visit, for a small museum it has many items to look at and hands on activities. Have been going for many years now.

Very interesting place to visit. Especially if you have children, they have a nice little Cafe area, only downfall they don't have their own car park
