Went really to see a friends temporary art exhibition which was great - on throughout May and worth a look - hadn’t been to the museum before but interesting to find out more about this area. Has potential to be a bit more interactive maybe!

Next to the town library is this charming, small museum depicting scenes from the history of the town. There are photo-information boards about all the surrounding villages and artefacts from craftsmen and businesses that thrived in the town.
