A lovely small, free museum. Gives you a bit of history of the town, and the early inhabitants. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgable.

Many thanks for your positive review. This is the sort of things our volunteers appreciate. However, I must point out that there is an entry fee of £4 per adult, although children under 16 do not pay.

We were greeted by friendly hosts who introduced us to the museum. Essentially a few rooms with display about the history of the town. We were also able to view a temporary exhibit of paintings which was nice. Inexpensive and only takes an hour
