  • Lovely friendly staff, but don't crowd you when you're looking to have a quiet afternoon. Great exhibits, love the range of art displayed and how it gets updated regularly. Often has hands on exhibits, great for families with kids!
  • Quite a good stock collection for a small city. Nice older building and a good cafe next door.
