Lovely small friendly museum, great for a place to go in the rain as there is always lots of craft activities for the children. In the summer the park is a must with sand pit and play park

The room with the guns in were really interesting and I saw medals that my grandad had from world war 2. I particularly liked the old televisions from my Nana’s childhood. Amelia, aged 6.
