There are more exhibits than we imagined, and all very interesting. The volunteers/staff are very friendly and only too happy to guide and assist if necessary. Well worth a visit.

We got there late in the day so only had an hour but loved every minute. Great collection of historical things including a steam train and really interesting Skylab stuff. The volunteers who were manning the desk were just lovely. Highly rrecommended!
