Very interesting and well worth the money. I was amazed at the amount of Victoriana exhibits and how people used to live. There is also an interesting section on first world war.

Never been to such an interesting step back in time. Beautifully presented and absolutely full to the brim with things from time gone by attractively and appropriately displayed. Rain or shine..not to be missed. Allow a good couple of hours at a minimum.
