Chatty staff with good local and historical knowledge. It isn't a large building but much is made of the space available. I guess that it can get crowded but cheerful and welcoming staff gave us as much information as needed

Worth a short visit if only to reminisce about the old equipment displayed both inside and out, that reminded us of grandparents. It is a very small charge to enter.
