Very good displays and a wide range of exhibits, as well as thought provoking artwork from local schools. I particularly liked the stories provided by family members, illustrated with them holding a photo of their ancestor who fought and/or died in WW1 and artefacts kept in the family for 100 years. Well worth a visit!read more
