Although this only a very small museum, I did find it very interesting and unusual. It was a good way to spend a wet hour. Nice gift shop too.

Not nearly as big as I thought from the advertising. Lots of crystals and replica fossils but presented in an unimaginative way. Shop was good though.
Great wee stop along the way. One of the greatest collection of earth stones I've seen. Local mining history was particularly interesting.
