So much of the history of the great town is presented. Very enjoyable. The chap who was there during our visit on 8 Mar was wonderful and helpful with some of my family history questions. It's also dirt cheap and great entertainment

Interesting rebirth of old railway building. I particularly loved the horse and his harness and the drawers and cupboards of interest in the first room.

This is a small but interesting museum that appears to be run on voluntary basis so entry is by donation . Well worth a look around to gather some of the towns heritage.
