Some good exhibits. Perhaps some could be better displayed as names hard to read. Rather chilly inside on a very cold day so didn't view everything. Café very slow to serve.

Had a good visit to the museum after Kents Caverns to see all the artifacts. I especially liked the top floor which is arranged by explorer. We also enjoyed the Agatha Christie information before our visit to Greenway.

Hi. I was looking at taking our grandson for a visit to your museum and looking at your entrance price can see why is value for money but not if you just want to visit the once.
