Train staff in appropriate behaviour. Took a group of disabled adults today found staff unfriendly and one attendant even shouted at one of the group causing her to cry, disgusting....

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.
