We stopped in here for a brief thirty minutes to see a view exhibits. Seeing these exhibits for free was a bonus. There is an adjoining gift shop containing some unique gift ideas.

This small museum is free, so go and experience it. Make sure you do not touch the exhibits as they will tell you off! I saw a good collection of 60's prints and paintings. The exhibition even included a mocked-up living room of the period...More
