This place is like an art gallery, a local history museum, a science exhibit and an ancient history museum all rolled into one. There really is something for everyone and the current Game of Thrones themed special exhibits are really awesome.

You don't need tickets as it's free! There is a large see through box at the front entrance were you may make a donation. Enjoy your visit!
