A growing awareness of our rich historical past, and the trend to research family history, has seen an increasing number of fascinating museums springing up around the country. In addition to the major city museums, local enthusiasts in smaller regional museums have established remarkable collections.
Based in small towns and often run by volunteers, these smaller museums are well worth a visit. Collections range from important exhibitions of regional and national history, to lines of vintage tractors, shelves of pottery and ceramics, even beer cans.
Many travellers have missed these museums - until now. This is the first guidebook written for travellers and visitors to the country. Quick and easy to consult, the book gives an overview of each museum and text boxes highlight unusual or special exhibits on display.
Each entry provides address and contact details, opening times, charges and facilities, family history archives, local refreshments and tourist attractions.
