Recently visited and enjoyed the displays. Loads of items which bring back happy memories. Our ages were 65, 65 and 92 so we remembered many. Would have been pretty boring for children and teenagers.

Where I now live we some times get up a coach trip, just to have a day out. Well on this occasion we went to Oakham treasures just outside Bristol, it's a museum, but it's far more than that. I have never seen such a vast range of items from the past in one place. They describe it as fascinating,... More

We popped in here to break our journey up to Devon. It's just off the M5 by the Gordano services at J19. You enter via a fabulous large tea room. I had a tuna mayo sandwich, which came with a side salad and crisps and a lovely cup of coffee latte. I didn't really study the menu but I think... More

We visited here on a recent holiday in Somerset after seeing a leaflet. Never seen so much stuff in a collection, You do need to go round again to take it all in. Some of it is laid out like old fashioned shops which is really good and a lot of things that we remembered from our youth (unfortunately!). Very... More

We visited Oakham Treasures last week in half term with my two Grandchildren who are aged 9 and 6. I was slightly concerned that maybe the youngest was a little too young and would find it boring but the weather was dreadful so an indoor attraction had to be done. I could not have been more wrong.We spent three hours... More

Oakham Treasures is a treasure trove of the past that will trigger memories for anybody old enough to have them. There is something for everybody here - young, old, male, female - the collection of agricultural machinery, the re-created shops, the cases of toys, tools, packets, jars, boxes - all the things we though we had forgotten about or thoughtlessly...

We went to Oakham today, its quite close to where we live and we have been meaning to go for ages, why we took so long I don't know it is great. Loads and loads of memorabilia from all ages and all categories from large tractors to miniature spirit bottles, old grocery items and kitcheneria, We went around once and... More

It is difficult to describe this collection! It is packed with so many fantastic things, and also mundane exhibits from the 20th century, which manage to amuse, excite and amaze in equal amounts. (I never thought I would see a packet of "Vim Cleaner" in a museum!!). Don't try and see everything, but wander gently round letting all the exhibits... More

Wow, that was the first word I spoke on entering oakham treasures, Absolutely fantastic, so much to see, so little time. They say give yourself 2-3 hrs, this is not enough, believe me. I took 143 photos, but it could have been thousands. Round every corner something different, sweets I remember eating, toys I played with. Will definitely visit again... More
