  • We had a great day out and there was plenty to keep the whole family amused including an 18 month old. Free entry! Nice and clean, we will definitely be back to try out the cafe!  more »
  • Well... free to enter with a suggested donation of £3 per person, which is so under priced! It is easy worth double that and more, it’s on three levels, and takes a good couple of hours to see it all....  more »
  • My favourite place to eat for lunch when working locally. An array of freshly prepared offerings and reasonably priced too. A guaranteed repeat customer. Thank you for your quality service.  more »

  • A world class collection of pottery. A must for collectors and researches and all completely free. Small cafeteria and many other intersting. no- pottery displays. Pay car parks very close and also bus stops.
  • An interesting place for kids or adults. Apart from collections there are often activities/events to entertain and educate. The shop is especially useful for unusual gift ideas, even clothes. A creative centre for locals and visitors alike. The cafe needs to upgrade it's menu and provide better coffee. Rather behind times as most cities museums offer very good food etc.
  • A brilliant local museum I've visited since I was very young. Stand out exhibits are always the full size spitfire (out for refurb at time of writing) and the wild animals. Look out for the domestic cat. A source of laughter in my family every time we see it
  • Very helpful when I arrived hear only sad part i at 2 ask about my meal in the cafe other than that I would recommend people to go and visit
  • I love museums this one is a bit hit or miss there some very good bits But some bits i don't know why they are there but worth a visit if you never
