This 'little' museum is a real gem. Not open Mondays, but well worth visiting another day. Easy to get round. Variety for all ages and changing exhibitions. Suitable café. Could easily spend 2hrs. minimum browsing. Lovely. Do this and the cathedral and stop for lunch....More

Quite special to be greeted at the front door. Further to be asked about our visit on leaving. The museum coffee shop had been recommended by local people. During a mixed late September day it was just what we needed. Coffee, fresh soup, decent bread...More
