Great day out for kids. Lots of information, Fun & Games. Activity sheets for the children and a lovely cafe to enjoy a coffee and a piece of cake afterwards. Worth a visit!

For a truly tiny museum this place offers great variety. Lots for little children to lift and press. Good magnetic wall mounted board game to teach about Princes of Wales. Clean. Cosy. Friendly. Light bright café.
