We took our Grandchildren here on th 23-08-15, I was suprised on how much there was to do for the children. A meccano exhibition was there and the children were able to get hands on builing things -a great sucess for my 7 year old grandson.

This is a great working museum, excellent value, could spend the whole day there children would not be bored!! I'd recommend anyone to visit if in the area. Parking was easy and only £2.00 for the whole day!!! Would definitely go back.

We had a nice day, expect that we couldn't go on everything due to lack of funds so we enquired, we we told that there is no facilities for this not even in the bank or cash back in the cafes . I would have thought that a cash machine would help people and encourage them to spend more

We had a fantastic day at Blists Hill but having payed £17 each for adults (children under 5 are free) we were surprised that the parking was an additional £2 and the charges dont stop there.

Re-enactors in Victorian dress make this a fun and educational experience for young and old. Talk with the townfolk to learn about their lives and occupations.
