  • Lovely local museum. Lots of interesting displays. Also can dress up in 3 different military uniforms & also dress like a Roman. Also has a lovely little cafe.
  • Great free family fun. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful with any questions. Plenty of activities for children. A lovely cafe selling freshly made food. When you've finished with your visit there is a nice little museum shop selling lots of lovely things.
  • Good little museum with a good range of exhibitions from different times. Just right for young children. One of the only things to do in the area on a wet day. Being free makes it even better.
  • A nice welcome and a grand courtyard are the start of a special experience at this museum , there is lots to explore covering z massive rainger of subjects . Especially good for kids with interactive displays and tours to do . Disabled access is good and my grandparents found the going easy. Highly recommend a visit ..
  • We have been to many castles and many museums but never a museum in a castle. A brilliant day and the kids loved the "silly selfish" bags and the reflection room. Awesome
