Loved this place, so much to see in what is essentially like a tardis. Loved the sloping floors, views of the town from the windows & the informative staff who can enhance your visit

Genuine items of local interest and the two Shropshire women I met there were a wellspring of information both about the exhibits and the history of the locale. This is history made real for all those who visit.

Free entry!!! but you'll be happy to make a donation to the upkeep of such a unique place. Hands on in the school room - children are encouraged to play and dress up. Knowledgeable volunteers running the place
