Worker’s Cottage – Our new worker’s cottage experience allows visitors to explore an original home in the village portrayed as it may have looked when first built in 1913.  Visiting the cottage is included in your museum admission.  The cottage has slightly shorter opening hours than our main museum displays but is still open daily from 11am-4pm.
