A simple one room museum, with displays showing various recovered Roman and other artefacts from the town's history. Works hardto create activities that will capture the interest of children. Of only passing interest foradults without children.

Worth a 30 minute visit. Well laid out and very informative. Each display is clearly labelled and the free guide is full of information. Plenty of hands on stuff for kids and very helpful staff.
