Admittedly, for your author this set of rooms is only mildly engaging, but the almshouses themselves, the gardens at the rear, and the pleasant little restaurant/cafe make the museum worthy of a visit if you are in the area and have time to kill.
The museum is free and is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am until 5pm, and noon - 5pm on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. It is closed on Mondays. There is also a restored 18th Century almshouse which is open occasionally for £2.
