The Museum is funded by donations. One way of making money is to ask for donations of books - and they sell the books. The most interesting books. Also the history of various families are displayed. Worth visiting the Museum

A lovely little museum, with friendly, helpful volunteer staff. It gives a lot of information on this lovely little town. The secondhand bookshop has some great titles for sale. Entry by a small donation. Well worth it!
