First opened in 2013, the museum incorporates artefacts and heritage from the town and the surrounding villages relating to 10,000 years of history and pre-history.
Each exhibition season the museum introduces a special theme to refresh the permanent display, which will generally include a raft of interactive activities suitable for visitors of all ages - from pre-school to pensioners - and with a variety of interests. Once you have completed your tour of the exhibits why not enjoy refreshment or something to eat in the cafe.
The museum is easily accessible by public transport and private car for which there is ample parking. Less able visitors can park in disabled spaces and access the first floor by a modern lift. Those with a hearing impairment need not worry, as they can connect to the museum's hearing loop
