You can even take a look at the ‘Royal Coach’ used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother during an official visit to the Island in 1963.

At the Museum why not take the opportunity to browse our range of souvenirs and gift ideas in our gift shop. Also try your hand at driving our very own Diesel locomotive on the islands only railway simulator which mimics the very track you have travelled on.  Cost is £5 for a 15 minute session or £10 for the enthusiast level.
