We called in expecting very little and spent an enjoyable hour visiting the museum with a treasure hunt for the kids. The museum isn't big but entirely staffed by volunteers who cannot do enough for you.

Sorry but dogs, are not admitted ( guide dogs are of course ). We have a family of mice but not sure that they would be able to entertain visitors!
