Went with husband and 3 kids (10, 8 and 4yrs) on a rainy afternoon. Only one room but took us 30min to look at everything, all 3 kids enjoyed what they saw as there was something for all. Well worth a visit.

It is great that your children also enjoyed the visit. We would love to have more space but the Grade 1 building restricts us. Thanks
