I'll be honest here,right from the off.I can actually see this place from my house but I don't think I've been in the castle museum for 20 years...until recently.we go to the park all the time as the kids love it.if you combine the park and activities the castle has running all through the year,you could easily spend a good few hours in the grounds.it's a beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer!
The museum,well I was pleasantly surprised.there were sections on history,wildlife,geography and yes,the witches-but it did cover the folklore of the area,not just the witches.there is a hunt for the kids to do,so they have to find things and in the process the actually look at stuff! There's lots of interactive exhibits which we had a great time with....turns out I'm pretty hopeless on a xylophone! My daughter and son did the brass rubbings and of course the daughter did a brass rubbing of how to summon Beelzebub...son went for a knight.. there is also a section where the kids can dress up in traditional clothing,which they loved! The staff are knowledgeable and helpful,the museum is only small so you are never far away from someone to ask but it is packed with interesting stuff so that's lucky! The gift shop is only small but there's enough for you to pick up a momento.all in all,a great afternoon in the museum.I'd recommend the grounds,it's a brill place to let the kids run riot
