There are 2 main galleries and a roof terrace with seats at the top with a view over the valley and hills above the town.

To give you extra information about the Museum, there is a guide to purchase and audio guides to listen to on your tour, which are especially useful for people with partial or little sight.

We are a family-friendly Museum so there are quizzes and colouring sheets for children, as well as things to explore and touch in the galleries.
