  • Visiting Tynwald Museum

    The story of Man is not completely without a look at this small museum, though not an official site it is well worth visiting. The Tynwald site model is very well done and gives a glimpse of what the area looks like when the tent for Tynwald Day is up. The large aerial view photograph gives a complete look of the site, which might not otherwise be appreciated. For those with a little imagination, try out the same formal red chairs guests of honour use when they attend the proceedings on Tynwald Day.
