A quirky little place just behind the main library. Interesting exhibitions and history of globes and their creators. It's quite straightforward in terms of display as it's exactly what it says but it's a interesting none the less. The only dampener on this visit was...More

I love globes so this small museum was always destined for a favourable review. It didn't disappoint. A comprehensive and varied collection of globes from 1536 to now. So why not excellent? The ticket for this museum is a combined one that gives access to...More
