  • Well worth a visit. Staff are very helpful. Packs in a lot of interesting facts. Good restaurant. And it's free to get in!
  • Worth a visit! Don't be put off; it's a fun, interactive museum with a lot of history. Much better than I remembered as a child. Highly recommended.
  • Very interesting museum quite small but packet with interesting fact about Northern Ireland and Down history.
  • Visited this museum today and liked it so much that I will visit again. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and I found the exhibits interesting and informative. I am a recent resident of the area and the museum helped to get my knowledge of history into context. An excellent day out and the tearoom is a must for excellent food,fabulous views and friendly service.
  • very interesting worth the time to visit
