We visited the museum earlier in the year and found it to be really interesting and informative...unfortunately it was closed on this occasion but when I'm next back I will definitely go again

This is a museum of many curios. There is much to look at and it can be a little confusing to take it all in. Worth a peek.

Good value and very interesting but they must have never refused an exhibit! Well worth a visit, good location and helpful staff.

There are so many artefacts crammed into this old building, it takes a long time to appreciate them and to imagine the people who last used them. Loved the marvellous collection of photographs, a real treasury for anyone interested in lhow life has changed over the last 100 years. Many items are on loan or have been donated by locals. Immerse yourself, kids can search for the little cats and there are activity sheets for them too. Great to see it continuing, staffed by volunteers, and I really think this is what real museums are all about. Not a digital display in sight!
