We spent a lovely afternoon visiting this museum, we were given a guided tour by a very knowledgeable young man who obviously enjoys his job. It may be small but has an amazing collection, well worth a visit.

Went for a visit to this museum and was very surprised by the range and amount of items on display. It was amazing to come across things that we had used in our lifetime now been shown in a museum. Well worth a visit.
