Popped in to visit the above but stayed to view more of the house. Spoke to two of the staff, both were helpful and very knowledgable about the house. Will visit again with the family.

Friendly and helpful staff and well described rooms make this a small but interesting museum. Probably not worth a long journey but definitely worth the best part of an hour, more if interested in the special exhibition/activities.

Georgian house with varied well presented room settings. No entrance charge - donations welcome. Short walk from Art Gallery and Museum - worth combining the two. Holds small specialist exhibitions so worth checking the web. Not easy for the disabled.

This little gem is easily missed but it is definitely worth a visit (especially as admission is free) From Japanese art to Vivienne Westwood shoes via a Georgian morning room and even an Edwardian bathroom (for public use), this eclectic collection is really worth a...More
