  • Loved this little museum. Visited with family including toddler. Just enough to look at and to interact with. Good parking. Toilets. Cafe. Nothing massively in depth so good for children. If your an adult you may be left wanting more knowledge but it's a start.
  • A nice little museum offering information about the forest and there are interactive displays to educate the children. Staff were polite and helpful. Excellent cafe within that offers a range of gluten free cakes as well as the normal bits.
  • It's a nice visitor centre. Museum provides introduction to the history of the area. At gallery worth a visit. Staff are pleasant but weren't able to provide information on some sites we asked about that related to the content in the museum.
  • Lovely centre. Helpful staff. 9 minute film. Well worth watching about the area. Free entry to film & museum.
  • Fantastic staff. Wonderful museum. Lovely location. Well worth a visit, thoroughly recommend.
