This is certainly one for historians and metal detectorists. I’ve never seen such an extensive collection of Bronze Age artefacts. It truly is amazing!

This is a very interesting and well run museum. We visited on a Friday afternoon and the lady in charge was extremely helpful. You need to check opening times because they are limited. I loved the recreated stilt house.
