Museum in the Park reviews
I love visiting the Museum and the picturesque location, especially in the summer. Interesting exhibits, lovely garden and supportive staff. more »
Nice little museum with some very interesting exhibits. The walled garden is pleasant and probably a lot more pleasant on a warm day. The cafe is simple but OK for a coffee and a snack. The highlight.... more »
Fantastic local history museum with attached art gallery and an amazing contemporary walled garden. Great for families and...well anyone really! Has a small cafe and delightful shop. Highly recommended.
Awesome museum, free!! With a donation if you feel like it. Great Laurie Exhibition (a relation of mine!) and dinosaurs, fossils and so many other great things. The walled garden is lovely. Highly recommended
