Well laid out, loads of information, and a fascinating old building to look around. Hope that it is able to stay open. Easy to miss it, it does not stand out - some more signage in the town would help to direct visitors to this museum. We just came across it by chance.

Quite a short trip round this wonderful old building. Lots of interactive bits and pieces for the kids to get into. Loved reading about the battle!

Excellent exhibition explaining the history of the town including the eponymous battle of the Wars of the Roses fought just a short distance away. It puts the other historical parts of the town into context.

Worth a look, especially if you've already popped into the Tourist Information Centre on the ground floor (excellent, helpful staff here).. It's geared towards school groups but still of interest to adults.
