What a surprise. The museum is full of excellent displays and there is a very good audio visual that should be watched before going on your tour. This is such a good visit.

An incredible array and a lot of artefacts related to smoking. Displays well set up to see at their best. The multi wooden pipe maker machine is worth the visit on its own. The shear number and variety of pipes is impressive.
