We sought out this little museum, which is tucked away and not well signed, but on locating it, we found they have very limited opening times and we were much too early for their 2pm to 4pm opening hours. Sadly, we couldn't wait in the...More

I attempted to visit this place earlier in the week but unfortunately the opening times are quite restricted. It's worth checking before you go (not a big issue for me as I was in the area anyway).

Misleading name, not a museum. Rather, it's a local cat shelter and adoption joint. There are 3 floors: resident cats (too old), cats for adoption and nursery (too young). The latter means kittens and that part did not smell good. A visitor can come there...More
