A wonderful working museum experience in a unique building giving a great atmosphere.Old lathes old milling and shaping machines actually working .The offices and bottling company was very interesting.A children's area with pencils and colours for young one to draw there interest.Lots to look at and plenty of information also audio support if required.

Well presented, and interesting assortment of drink bottling equipment, and the desert boot display, which I understand is temporary, was very interesting, as was the section on how rocks were quarried from underground. This museum offers very good value for money.

A glimpse of how our recent ancestors lived & worked and the rise and fall of one family firm - this was a fascinating glimpse at a bygone age. The volunteers were friendly and helpful & many of the exhibits could be handled. The entrance charge was small and worth every penny. Not to be missed!

The museum was very cheap to purchase tickets to look around. The museum took us around the workings of the water bottle company which we both found very interesting.

A very interesting museum. Not being a local, the museum staff patiently explained the history of the building to me. I almost had the place to myself to explore
