"I was fortunate enough to visit CR  Museum January 2007, but  I  didnt  have enough time to do it  justice... this  is a gem of a  place, and certainly one of the most enjoyable/informative Museums I have seen  in the  world, it's  so  obviously been  put  together  with  much  love and affection for the  history of  its  area....complimentary words  don't  do  enough  praise  for the  little  wonder this  place  is.   I  hope to return one  day  when I have much more  visiting  time."
