  • Be prepared to pay £5 for only 3 rooms of things to look at. The working morse code machine was great though. The place just needs a few more interactive exhibits or something.
  • Cant review the museum as we didn’t go in. £5 per adult is an admission fee and not a suggested donation that the woman behind the counter told us. We walked around the shop but felt unwelcome when the woman told us off when we unknowingly crossed the imaginary line as the shop is half museum. Could be worth the money, but I think been clear on admission fee would benefit this place.
