A very well laid out and interesting Museum in a Merchants House. Medieval/ Wartime/ military/ early 20th century/ guns and pottery. You can walk into a medieval chimney and look to the sky.

City museums are often quirky places, combining straight historical narration with the citizens' ideas about what they are proud of, plus a good dose of whatever collections prominent people have donated over the years. This museum is in that mold. It tells a good story...More
