“Excellent small museum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Didn't know it was here. Came upon it just walking through the village. Enjoyed all of it including the slightly down at heel garden. The whole place captured the feel of Milton. Could well imagine him here.

“A little place, a lot to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Like stepping back to another time - run by knowledgeable and motivated people, there's so much to see here in so little space. And the garden's listed. A must.
