This was enjoyable but very small. Being used to so many free museums in Wales it seemed a lot to pay for one room of exhibits. The staff were friendly and I enjoyed my short time here.

I spent much longer in here than I anticipated - the talking tapes were addictive and I liked the way all aspects of local life were illustrated. When I was there (June 2016) there was also a great exhibition of textiles on the ground floor....More
