Small but interesting local museum with a mixture of interesting exhibits. Good collection of photographs of the early, now defunct, railway in the area. Don’t miss the exhibits in the outhouses.

Interesting place to spend a half hour or so, learning about the local history. They have some interesting displays and the buildings themselves are interesting.
