There are several different displays here, some of which change throughout the year, so it's definitely worth popping back and seeing what is new every now and then. Great location too at the top of Park Street and near the Wills Memorial Building.

This is a great free and interesting museum with plenty of varied exhibits. Perfect to pass a few hours, keep children and adults entertained and keep out of the rain on a wet day.

Yes you can, maybe without flash though, there are notices on the doors where photography is not allowed.
