This little museum has been put together extremely well. It gives young people an insight into what life was like in days gone by. I could have spent more time here. Well worth a visit.

The Activities bus made a stop at this small museum. Found it very interesting with local women doing tatting and spinning of wool. Lots of great little rooms set up to depict various area of life. Worth the stop.
