Cannot comment on museum itself as we had limited time and came into ask re Tourist Information. Staff could not have been more helpful and the artist section with coffee stall provided us with rest and chance to buy one of the artists' work. Hope the council realise how lucky they are with their volunteers!

A calm haven in an increasingly noisy hectic world. I enjoy an Americano coffee (Douwe Egberts) for £1.20 whilst viewing the art exhibitions. The staff are friendly, the cafe area clean, airy and bright.
