A wealth of interesting knowledge is hidden away in this little gem of a place. I have visited when there has been food cooked re-enacting the days of old ... it was excellent. So worth a visit if you have children.

Just visited with my wife. We really enjoyed it, especially the antique toy fair. The lady on the door is very informative, providing additional information and local knowledge. Its a free museum with donations taken.
