Really friendly, helpful and approachable staff made us welcome from the start. The collection has a broad range of historic artefacts and modern art. A smaller scale makes it easy to locate students and see everything they need to see. (February 2019 - Secondary School)




Great premises, good facilities, the walk here was very good. Next time each volunteer helper will need a copy of the talking points, a specific group to work with, and perhaps to make notes or take photos to really get the most out of the map and field work. (January 2019 - Primary School)
