So unique and very different from the usual type of museum. Lots to see - I took my mum who is in her 70's and she remembered lots of the items on show. The toys and games, long with the households items and food. Also the replica rooms and how life was when she was a child..go and see it.... More

Popped in here as we had a couple of hours spare before meeting friends. Cost was only £2.50 each and it was well worth the money. Various rooms to see on the ground floor - old shop and barbers before we went down into the cellar. In here you could see the back of the houses where they had 'extended'... More

I have visited this museum on a few occasions and it always seems different.

This city does not have a lot to offer in the way of museums and one of the few was not open midweek in the school holidays what a missed opportunity

The museum is a maze of historical shops and living spaces. Very well done. The guides make sure you don't miss a thing.
