  • Moved into new premises at the end of last year and this was my first visit. Great variety of items on display, with activities/displays for younger visitors. Great to see a couple of locomotives on the ground floor! It includes the regimental museum for the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. Well worth a visit. As is the café!!! 😁 Free entry!!
  • Excellent art gallery, good varied selection - currently also has exhibition of 20rh c art.
