  • It's a hidden gem! The cafe is gorgeous, and the museum is brilliant for both children and adults. They run on donations as they're a charity, which makes it an affordable place to visit.
  • Most informative, had no idea that so much information could be placed into what looks like (from the outside) a small building. This place is just 'dripping' with historical information.
  • Well laid out, fascinating & far more exhibits than I was expecting...and a nice cafe too.
