  • 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.
