This was really lovely for all the family and HUGE! There were many rooms and always special exhibitions. All the staff were very friendly. There was a small, cozy cafe linked with lovely cakes! There was also a nice gift shop.

This is a lovely free museum. Really interesting exhibits. A lovely cafe and the most beautiful garden which at the moment is full of Spring flowering bulbs and hellebores. Highly recommended.
