“Ok I suppose”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

I found it interesting as I was brought up in the town, moved away and returned many years later feeling nostalgic. I also remembered the museum when it was a hospital and a family member was an inpatient many years ago.

If I didn't have that connection/interest, I would have been disappointed I think.

Also I was made to feel that I had to put a comment in the visitors book and had to do a survey on the Museum. I did one, not the other. The woman behind the very small counter was right next to both pieces of paper and I got the impression she was watching like a hawk to make sure you did both. She was distracted when I left....a bit overpowering when you don't really want to get into a discussion I felt.

Young children could quite possible be bored stiff - teddies or no teddies.

“Not for the young”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I liked the building but there was a great deal of reading and not a lot to see. I would not take a child even though they are trying to encourage children by using a toy bear cupboard. Collect a companion bear to take around with you. Not a good idea unless the bear can read.
