  • Very nice museum. Wide range of collections and not too much- just about right size. Special exhibition at the time was Ladybird artists and it was very good too. But the highlight is Bagpuss & Clangers section definitely. Small but "must see" exhibition for all fans.

  • Great facilities to keep young children entertained in almost every room while adults appreciate the displays on the walls.

  • Curious museum with a wide selection of collections. It's free too so well worth a visit!

  • Great little museum, gallery and plenty of activities for the kids! And I really like the giant cow paintings!!!

  • Perfect sized museum for a quick visit. But surprisingly varied exhibits, a bit of everything. Fairly interactive as well. Plus it's free
