What a gem! A bit off the beaten track but really beautiful, with a friendly and knowledgeable curator. Some really interesting exhibits. Be aware that it closes for lunch. Totally free.

One of a couple of farm museums on the Island, this is the smaller and less grand of the pair. Despite the fact that it has been rebuilt and that most of the contents have been brought in from elsewhere, it has a real atmosphere,...More
