My friend had her book launch here. There was a wonderful art exhibition too. The building had a great sense of place. Great for kids to get a feel to what it was like living there. Great cafe. Lovely people.

There is a lot packed into a small place, the history of King John, and the Moody family, as well as a lovely garden. The entrance fee is reasonable and appropriate to the size of the museum.
