Fodor's Review

This excellent museum, in a Georgian mansion near the castle, tells the story of the daily lives of local people. There are chances to create a silhouette portrait or play with Victorian toys, and there are occasional children's events, such as puppet making. The museum is in the same building as the Tourist Information Centre.
