I like to pop in a few times a year. The Roman floor, skeleton and the long boat never loose their appeal. There are permanent exhibits, local artifacts and room set ups. The world war two shelter is wonderful and the rooms through the decades...More

Daughter loves coming here, interesting range of displays, some with an emphasis on local history. The exhibits from the 1980s made me feel old! Probably shouldn't have mentioned this to the parents as we had also looked at the 1940's house. Good exhibits about WW2...More
