  • Very interesting and ideal activity for our nieces & nephews when we are baby sitting!
  • What a wonderful little museum! Very helpful and friendly staff, and £5 for a whole year!? Amazing value!
  • Anyone who thinks vaguely that the slave trade was "not quite nice" should visit this little museum in the "pancake town" to discover just how truly awful it was.
  • Well worth a visit
