Lovely museum with lots of interesting info/exhibitions. We went when they had a pirate event going on so there was lots of activities to do for children. Clean and tidy facilities. Friendly staff. Cafe was very nice - good service and very reasonably priced.

As museums goes this it pretty impressive. It got loads of things to do for young and old alike. It was hard to park but I did. It got a great cafe, the staff knew what they were doing
