Well worth a visit. Not too big so does not take long if you are short of time but plenty of information if you want to take in more. Well worth the visit.

Thank you for your very positive response! I was a little concerned when I saw your review, as you gave the Museum only one out of five. I'm glad I had no need to worry! Thank you again.
