This is brilliant and extremely informative. There are wonderful things on display and the staff are very well informed and will answer any questions you may have. I live quite near and always try to take any visitors I have there. Well worth a visit.

Such a fantastic place, clearly a labour of love. Really quirky and some really moving stories of lives lost that made the stories come to life so much more. My seven year old said it was “the best day ever”.

Hi Kevin admission was £3 last year but so worth it! There is another museum next to it but smaller where admission is free with donation box on way out. Sorry don't have aerial picture. PS there is also free parking.
