This is a military museum treating, mainly, the history of a disbanded local regiment. It's interesting and free and you should go to it, not once, but repeatedly. It will repay each visit.

Extensive collection of uniforms, weapons and medals. Fascinating to see a Victoria Cross. The medals were well displayed in lots of pull out drawers. Free with opportunity to donate.
