We visited totally on spec, just passing through. Fell in love with the town and the castle/museum. There are exhibits on a wide range of subjects, from history and archaeology, to WW2 to arts and crafts, ie lace and basket making.

This a great little museum with a variety of displays. Historical, political, sporting, artistic, it's got something for everyone and very interesting. It's worth the walk up through town. The grounds and gardens are also worth a visit.
