“Interesting but limited”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice to visit but more engaging for kids with activities/quiz. History and exhibits were quite interesting but a little dull for adults.

A small museum but kids really enjoyed it. A lovely cafe and lots of arts and crafts to do as well as a quiz.
