This place is a little hidden gem! There is loads of great information and exhibits inside. They change their exhibits frequently, so you can always see something new. It´s good for kids too, it isn´t too big so they don´t get bored and there is lots of activities to keep them interested.

There are beautiful original tiles and set of stairs leads to ceramics room and also display of Auberon birds... More

Its in the university area, so off the beaten track. Small with some eclectic exhibits. Near the pipe collection are some autopsy instruments for example. Very unusual, will take longer to get there then go round, but glad we went. Has a cafe which is worth a visit as well
