  • Wonderful smaller museum. Great items and a lot of history. Loved the bee hive and the butterfly house. Staff were really helpful
  • I used to go as a child and interesting to go again as an adult. Some of the exhibits are the same but it's had a major face-lift now. The butterfly house is a must.
  • Adorable little museum, staff are clearly passionate about the place and are happy to offer more information on the exhibits. The butterfly house recently reopened and it is their star attraction, wonderful experience
  • Informative and interesting, as well as free. The new Butterfly House is much better than the old one too.
  • Lovely small museum and Butterfly House. Ideal to bring children.
