This museum is a fascinating treasure, made all the more precious by its limited opening times. The love child of financier Michael Stone it is a collection of around 250 maps and atlases from throughout history, including what may be the first map ever printed. Some of these are extremely rare, perhaps the only one of their kind. There is even one by Ben Franklin. The point of the maps is to get people to understand the history and importance of cartography. Don't miss it.
