  • free museum with WW1 exibit and a street with period shops the gardens containt an old length of medieval castle wall 
  • Fabulous! Went with baby in pushchair and was able to navigate the house and gardens. The staff on the front desk were very knowledgeable and helpful, and all with the added bonus of free entry. The house exhibits are very well presented with the Victorian Street being the highlight for me. I heartily recommend a visit here and it's only a short walk to the town centre.
  • Been going on and off for 50yrs always find something new to look at great museum
  • A great little musem with exhibits that will keep you interested for hours.
  • A really great, free museum. If you go in small groups, you might get better service. However, taking groups of students over wasn't appreciated because they were enjoying the exhibits too loudly. The exhibits are great though.
  • Great fun, good exhibits, and didn't cost much. Definitely worth a visit. Went there with one other on Mayday and they had entertainers and other activities, too.
