As with other museums here a short visit suffices to pass an hour mostly. similar on offer is a past life style of former residents with possessions and photos displaying their toils,, Ok for whiling away the time and cheap too.

The original house of Montagu, full of interesting relics and historical items. Take the tour that is offered and learn about the early settlers and how they lived.
