Too much to tell people, GO there and find out for yourselves.there is something there for ALL Rayleigh residents, young and old. Keep up the good work, Mike, and your excellent Team more »
Small but full of interesting things about Rayleigh. Well worth a visit. They have different exhibitions but they are all good. more »
Excellent museum and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Definitely recommend a visit.
Always worth a visit. Friendly staff are able to help you if you need it. They are very knowledgeable, the artifacts and the documentation are vast for such a small space. You could spend ages there if you wished to do so. I have been multiple times now and I always learn something different every time I go.
