  • Very well presented. (One of the best I've seen). Lots of information. Huge Roman section! Presented chronologically. Tickets valid all day, (so can come and go). Nearby parking, (we parked in the Old Station Car Park). Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend!
  • Brilliant museum, well laid out with clear explanations. I loved the listen and see explanations, great for children and adults if you're like me that find it easier to understand when shown by someone. It's amazing what has been found locally. Well worth a visit.
