With our iconic kiln hovel at the centre, our museum has had some exciting new additions in recent years and is now home to a newly built Children’s Outside Playzone, Heritage Lottery Funded ‘A Toilet Story’ Exhibition and ‘The National Forest Gallery’.
The Museum also houses Café Espresso, Tourist Information Centre and a Gift Shop selling a range of locally sourced items perfect for that unique gift.
