Sober a lovely couple if hours here. It's got something for everyone whether it's reminiscing, learning a little more about history or just enjoying a family day out. I'd recommend Bygones if you're I the area.

We took our 2 children aged 10 and 12 to Bygones for a afternoon visit. The ticket price is reasonable. We all enjoyed looking at all of the fascinating memorabilia, and recognising some familiar brands in the shop displays. Our children enjoyed the Model Railway Display and the Amusement Arcade. We enjoyed a half time refreshment break in the restuarant.... More

We visited on a rainy day (oops) and the place was packed. It is a gem and there is so much to see here. The trouble we had is so many people were allowed in that you just couldn't see anything and felt pushed along the whole time. We had a family with lots of children behind us all with... More

It promises so much outside and whilst it is a museum its just well.... terrible. I guess it would be ok for very little kids or for the elderly remembering the past. Its not something worth paying for, well I might pay 20p and still feel robbed.

For many years, I have driven past Bygones, always wondering what it is like inside. This year, I got my own way and four of us visited. Considering the sky high price of other attractions, I thought the entrance price was very reasonable. The displays are well thought out and it's surprising how much has been included. I think this... More

Me and my family really enjoyed walking around this museum. Even my four year old found it interesting! Would definitely recommend it. A lot of work has been put into it!
