An interesting new, little museum. Grandchildren loved turning the handles and pressing the buttons on all the moving displays. Activity area was a good idea and was full of children on the day we went due to the inclement weather - could have been a...More

I went specifically for an exhibition. The ladies who greeted me could not have been friendlier. They were welcoming, pointed out all that I needed to see, and were well informed on their subject. It was calm, and quiet. A most enjoyable visit.

So glad I visited this place. I was a bit hesitant at first as I'm not of a generation that recognises Robinson's work. Nevertheless, the museum was great - a lovely space with lots of information and exhibits of his work. I left with a...More
