A lovely little museum over two floors. Lots of interesting exhibits and helpful staff. Free admission, donations are welcome though. We found the chair with the curse on it particularly interesting.

Lots of interest and quirky detail in a beautiful town-centre historic building. The museum is run by dedicated local volunteers who will be absolutely delighted to talk to you about the exhibits and local history.
