Small but rich with interesting exhibits and varied, and often brave, specialist exhibitions. The tea room and shop are interesting and the staff friendly. Love this place. However, to appreciate some of the exhibits, one needs to take the time to read the available brochures and guides.

A gem of a museum, both for the outstanding collection of craft and design but also beautiful architecture and setting. See Dunstan Pruden's work there and then visit our workshop for a contemporary update!
Excellent little museum with things you won't find anywhere else. But over too quickly as it's a bit small. Another room or two and it would be perfect.
Excellent and elegant little crafts museum of local artists of repute, cafe and shop. If you are into design especially, this should probably be on your list to visit.
Superb local museum, exhibition and training/meeting place...with a shop and cafe! This sort of place revives your faith in the goodness of small and local. Hats off to the original founders, the Bourne sisters, and all the subsequent sponsors
