  • Small but packed museum, with fantastically well-presented exhibits​. Learned​ a lot about the area, loved the family history photograph collection and glass exhibits​ most of all. The gift shop has crafts made by local people and staff members - excellent quality and value.
  • Award winner for best regional museum. Come and visit this lovely little gem of a museum. There's something for everyone.
  • A nice musuem with a cafe in there cheap to get in and some interesting things and history. At the end is part of a sailing ship that you can go inside and out and looks over the river
