  • It’s pretty cool. You can’t really argue with the price - it’s free - and the Iron Age ship makes the trip with it on its own. There’s lots of interactive stuff on the third floor that both the young and young at heart will enjoy. The first floor seems kind of dull in comparison, if I’m being honest.
  • very good actually. free entry to begin with!! lots of interactive items for adults AND children to learn from. 3 floors, lift access to each floor. every floor different. lots to do with local history and the staff was welcoming and very pleased to see you.
  • Well worth a visit. An eclectic mix of exhibits ranging from local history to 2nd world war. The ancient long boat is especially worthwhile. Do watch the film on it's discovery and restoration
  • Phenomenal small museum with a large and diverse collection, all for free. There is a brilliant set of displays on wars fought by the British navy across the Napoleonic wars and the 2 world wars. There is also a stuffed polar bear!!! But the highlight was a well preserved 3000 year old bronze age boat. And did I mention? All for the wonderful price of 0 GBP!!!
  • Loved the Museum.peaceful.clean and warm.every interesting. Helpful staff .
