Free entry. Displays are brilliant. Simulated car ride in vintage car excellent for £1. Horse drawn carriage ride upstairs is very good too to entertain the kids. Well laid out and diverse displays. Could easily spend a full morning or afternoon there.

There is a multi storey car park next to the Magistrates Court which is cheaper than the local Council ones. There is also plenty of on street car parking closer if you're only staying a short while.

I think you can walk over the bridge and get to it from the deep. Probably 5-10 mins?
