Very informative visit to the museum and reasonably priced. It is pretty small and could be more interactive for younger children, however it does show a great film at the end. Worth a visit

What a shame I was so looking forward to finding out about the book, the area and about smugglers. No interactive exhibits. Dated signage, lots of paintings but not many facts.
