A great little museum with a beautiful garden. Our son loved the dinosaur room, particularly dressing up in the dinosaur costumes. The cafe was reasonably priced and had a good range of drinks and snacks. Lots of artefacts and information. Worth a visit.

Accessible. Well laid out and labelled. Interesting for all ages. Staff knowledgeable and welcoming. Definitely a venue to be visited more than once. Also a cafe and many other outdoor attractions - like a full sized dinasoar

Eclectic collection of local artefacts from all periods from Stone Age to 21st century. Probably best for schoolchildren but worth an hour of anyone's time.
