This place is so full of interesting displays. We wish we'd had more time to stop and see them all but we were on a time limit so only spent half an hour here.

Stopped here during our day out touring around. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the museum was packed full of items and information. You can walk around at your own pace and there is also a small mock town street outside.
