The collection contains a range of objects many including coins, pottery, weaponry and even a jet bear. These unique snapshots of the area’s past are brought to life with a regular programme of fun, interactive activities for all visitors.

Family workshops run throughout the school holidays, and include craft and drama sessions for all ages. In the past these have included a clay workshop, a jewelry making session and a how to be an archeologist morning.  The museum also holds events and activities for adults including talks, tours and hands on sessions with objects from the collection.
