Popped in here as I was staying in BB just opposite, it was so interesting with lots to see. You get a short video when you first go in which was good. Well worth a visit

I'm sorry, but we are unable to help. The museum giftshop no longer stocks this item. It was a novelty souvenir and not a detailed map.
