Admission free (donations appreciated). Parking lot (the cast) compared to.

  • Brilliant detail well presented, including a video of spectacular shots of the area linked to lights on a relief map below. Absorbing, watched twice. Cafe and shop. Modern lift in each end of historic building.

  • Looks good after the revamp and plenty to see. Recommended.
  • Great museum showcasing Berkshires heritage
  • Well laid out, not very big.
