The house of the dead and the house of life, both as interesting as each other, hundreds of genuine artifacts, and always staffed by knowledgeable, enthusiastic students from the university who are willing to answer any questions.

Had a tour of this wonderful museum this morning, I was amazed to find this little gem so close to home, full of amazing artefacts. The staff and volunteers are a credit to the University and I look forward to the monthly guest lectures.
