  • Highlight for me was the small but delightful display of posters and other graphic design work by Edward Bawden.
  • Nice place to go for a quiet thought and wander. They do some great kids' activities during school holidays
  • Great museum, very interesting! A little hard to navigate, I'd visited twice before realising there was an upstairs too!
  • Great little museum with excellent ceramics and Willi Burgess displays. Good cafe / Italian brasserie. Some VG exhibitions from time to time.Thoroughly civilised!
  • The Higgins punches way above its weight for a museum in a small town. The current exhibition of Picasso prints is well worth a visit. Since the refurbishment of the buildings the presentation on local archaeology is really quite impressive and exciting. Even the gift shop is noteworthy - low on "fragile tat" and high on genuinely interesting bits and bobs.
