  • Lots to see and look at. Plenty of space around things. It has things from a long eared bat to a spitfire that's being restored. Would recommend this to all ages.
  • Not really my thing, so OK. I know pottery experts though who would give it 5* so if you're in to it, recommend you go and see.
  • Nice couple of hours in the museum and art gallery. Worth a visit.
  • Family favourite. Some of the exhibitions are really old now but I think that's why we like it so much.
  • Great place to visit, lots of local history. Visited in July 2016 to view the Downton Abbey costumes, a bit disappointing there were so few and costly for a family wishing to visit.
