right in the middle of the town, its a must to visit, local history blended with history from further a field, helpful staff and wheelchair friendly, we was on a flying visit so was all a tad rushed, but will return to spend more time there, free entry upon visit was welcoming, donations are greatly appreciated, a little gem
