Beautiful building and attractive Galleries. A fun visit was spoiled by the extremely slow ticket payment process. We arrived as the museum opened and it took 35 minutes to actually purchase our tickets. Would definItely purchase on line in the future.

We learnt so much about local history in this newly opened museum. It was all beautifully presented in a modern and interesting way. A great place to visit on a cold day.
