I have visited this delightful museum several times and always find the staff, all volunteers, very friendly and helpful. On this occasion we were drawn to visit by an exhibition of local artists, carefully displayed with a good supporting catalogue, and an offer of coffee and biscuits.

This House Museum was very interesting with plenty of local information about the area the staff/volunteers were both knowledgable and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the Polyphon - the foreruuner of the jukebox ..amazing !! For visitors with youngters the Toy room is a must visit ...

From friendly staff to a treasure trove of trinkets and artifacts spanning centuries relating to the town and surrounding areas this is worth a visit. It's free and quite small but it well kept and should hold something if interest for everyone...go along.

Lovely house with a host of treasures to look at. My parents really loved it and reminiscing on some of the exhibits especially the ration books. Free entry was also a bonus. No dogs allowed but they took us out to the garden with the dog and take it in turns to sit with her. Would recommend

A tiny museum, free entry, so it's okay if you have nothing to do, but it's boring really. Never liked it as a kid, and would be bored in there now.

We were going to the castle but it was closed so we ended up visiting this little museum - FOC to get in and very interesting local information. The staff (who must be volunteers) were helpful and had lots of background information.

The museum is an old house that is really charming. Run by great, helpful volunteers. Well worth a visit if you have the time.
