A Victorian parlour showing how a middle class Victorian family would have lived. Another interesting element of the exhibition is a display of Victorian toys. It includes dolls houses, dolls, teddy bears, board games and many other much loved toys and games.

A Natural History room featuring an extensive collection of birds and animals. In addition, the collection also comprises many interesting fossils that highlight the changes in climate and landscape that have taken place over millions of years.
