  • We enjoyed our visit here - very interesting exhibits and amazing structure to see inside. Well worth a visit if you have an hour or two. We definitely recommend.  more »
  • Something for everyone in this deceptively large museum. 4 generations from 5 to 89 enjoyed an afternoon viewing the artefacts. Great bonus the museum has free entry for all.  more »

  • Lovely museum. Lots of local history. Tea and coffee with the best lemon drizzle cake inside
  • Really interesting local museum. Spent a good while there, but not long enough. Well worth a visit if interested in local history and life style. And it's Free!
  • A great place to visit in the Old Butter and Meat Market buildings with something to suit all ages and interests. Allow at least an hour, preferably longer to enjoy. Open 10-4 (not Sundays)
  • The best place if You like history.
  • Surprisingly big once you're in! Really friendly staff and lots of variety in the exhibitions.
