This memorial museum has displays on the life and work of the well-travelled Lafcadio Hearn, as well as some of the man's personal effects – including his dumb-bells, spectacles, and a stack of Japanese newspapers on which he wrote words and phrases to teach English to his son. Hearn enthusiasts should pop round next door to have a look at his old residence .
