    I can only recommend the Museum. Deter not leave, that you have to get there through the shop, because it's worth the visit.

Highly recommended!

    Nice shop but rude staff. Was trying to decide on a present for my daughters & was looking at the lovely rspb chirping birds but was scolded by a man working there for taking too long to make up my mind. He was obviously having a bad day but he should probably have stayed at home. Won't be going back there again!
