  • Certainly informative but struggles to be value for money.
  • The museum itself is unbarring mediocre. Nothing stands out about it. Its just a load of useless statistics stuck to the wall on laminated A4 sheets. Not to mention the racist who works at reception. If your Irish, don't go near him. boooooooooo
  • Thought it was most informative. Well worth the entrance cost.
  • We visited the museum whilst on a short break in the west country. the exibits where quite interesting especially the home made weapons and tattoo equipment. the main area is a little on the dark side making if quite difficult to see things clearly. overall a worthwhile place to visit.
  • Excellent displays, very interesting articles and artifacts on show. I would recommend taking children young and old to see it. Good bit of local history.
