Museum not worth while

Staff was really friendly and helpful. Food was lovely. Feeding the two deers in the enclosure was fun. The museum was really quite organic and basic, some old photos, newspaper cuttings and with some interesting information along with mounted deer heads and antlers,not really worth the full price of $12, ok for the bookme price.
