I was very agreeably surprised at the size and quality of this zoo, considering that I had never heard of it until researching on the internet. It lacked many of the big and popular animals like lions and elephants, but more than made up with unusual creatures, many of which I have never before encountered in zoos. The potteroo and the aardwolf are but two examples. The animals were all well kept and mostly in large enclosures. Altogether, a very good day out and thoroughly recommended.

I visited this small, but very interesting museum last Friday. It was free to go in. The curator, Matt, was incredibly knowledgeable and enthused wildly about Cromwell. It felt really special to have this one-to-one treatment, as no one else was in the museum. There are lots of interesting artefacts and paintings and many of Cromwell's possessions including his wonderful wide-brimmed felt hat! There's also a very good selection of books about Cromwell, The Commonwealth and The Civil War on sale.

I don't remember the last time I've enjoyed a town museum this much. Located in the former jail and courthouse, which is woven into the story. Great staff, superbly labeled and presented displays, really told the story of the town in the context of the times, engages kids, has community events, was topical, and well laid-out. I found nothing eccentric about it (per some reviews) but I thought it was really quite professional. Admission is free for those from the surrounding area.
