The Festive Open Day on 27th December attracted quite a crowd of visitors. 

The tour of the collection led by the Hon. Curator at 2 o'clock was greatly appreciated by all who attended.  


The Museum moved to this building in the mid nineteenth century There have been many additions in that time. There is always something new to see among artefacts of national and international significance.
