Not very interesting for young children (7year old) .not much to see, mainly wall charts explaining the town when it was a booming spa town. Exhibitions were mainly from the fifties which made me feel ancient.

We enjoyed this museum and it has interactive activities and tours to the well. The building is historical in its own right
