We are situated in a lovely 17th century house in the heart of the town’s old fisher quarter, a stone’s throw from both the Castle and the Cathedral.
Our reconstructed Victorian shops, Great-Granny's wash-house and social history displays will transport you back in time. We have an award-winning, tranquil 'hidden' garden to the rear of the house that is home to an array of gorgeous plants and exhibits that are truly good for the soul.
The museum collections include fine art, costume, furniture and many other objects with local connections. There is also an important collection of some 10,000 photographs, postcards, slides and glass negatives. These can be viewed by arrangement with the Curator.
