  • It's a local museum. I left feeling that I'd learned something. The staff were friendly and helpful.
  • Informative if a little badly presented, but worthy of a visit; I particularly liked the fact they displayed inmates art, shame that it wasn't for sale although inmate manufactured garden ornaments were... hmmmm curious... overall I would say 7/10
  • Certainly informative but struggles to be value for money.
  • Thought it was most informative. Well worth the entrance cost.
  • 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
