  • I never knew about this place for ages and I wish I had known sooner
  • Lived in Bangor for years and only found out about this place recently! The small museum has lots of interesting information about the town's history. There's also a good coffee shop that's well worth a visit in itself.
  • You'd be surprised how much history Bangor and the surrounding area really has and this is a great way to learn of some of it! The surrounding Castle Park is beautiful too and is worth a walk through. The museum also has a coffee shop on the ground floor to relax in afterwards.
  • Pretty small museum but it's in pretty nice settings.
  • Great museum, friendly staff, lovely surroundings.
