Coldstream Museum

Founded: not sure        Governance: LA       Scope: Military & local history   Visited: Autumn 2018

You would expect a museum in Coldstream to major on the local regiment, the Coldstream Guards, and this is indeed the case; though the museum also finds space for the general history of the town within its bijou premises. However, the collection isn't extensive, and so the version of Coldstream's past it presents is an impressionistic rather than a systematic one, depending on what it has available to show: still, as we always say, you can't go wrong with old medical bottles, and the museum does well integrating its toys with activities for children, or rather, appealing specially to them. And that's about all I can say. I visited Coldstream Museum suffering badly from a strained knee and sore feet as a result of walking far too far in inappropriate footwear, and though it provided a refuge, I was somewhat distracted!
