  • I spent a wonderful few hours here and thoroughly enjoyed looking around! There were some fabulous childrens activities going on and everyone was helpful and enthusiastic! There is a lovely garden to the rear of the museum, beautiful on a nice summery day. I was fascinated by the new Pilgrim exhibition which I believe opens officially on 19th September. There were outfits for children to dress up in and an excellent display including visual and audio stories in the second room! Very friendly staff, I highly recommend a visit! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
