This is a real plus. A museum that is not to large and yet really interesting. We didn't have our grand children with us but they would have loved it.

A very interesting museum with some very good exhibits. The simulated carriage ride is brilliant. An interesting parade of old shops to look at, well worth a visit.

A top-class and free museum in the Old Town. Fantastic exhibits of vehicles, bikes and other artefacts, all in excellent condition and imaginatively displayed. Staff very friendly and helpful.

What could be better than somewhere to spend your time for free? Brilliant little attraction which kids seem to enjoy.

This museum is free and much of a hidden gem. There are lots of displays and it is much bigger than first impressions may suggest. An interesting and enjoyable visit.
