I did not think it would my cup of tea but it was interesting especially when many of the old industrial machines were fired up. Having to work long hours with a consistent battery of machine noise became very poignant. (A coffee bar would have been good though!)

I couldn't believe this was a free museum! I have paid for much much less. It had loads to see. Favourite bits were.. The engines, cars and trams .. The weaving rooms ( great friendly staff) and the back to back houses. We arrived late so we only had an hour and a half.. Could have stayed much longer. Great... More

We went here for the grand day out and they did amazing, vikings, home guards and old cars were fun to see. The museum isn't always fun(same things most times) but it is educating. My kids love going and stamping and looking at the old cars and buses.

I have been to this venue many times over the years and have enjoyed it every-time. On this occasion it was to take video for an online video course I am currently doing. I knew they ran the machinery every Wednesday but confirmed it by email and received a fast reply confirming this. My visit was well rewarded by helpful... More

I have visited here with my husband, with my children (who are now grown up) and my 4 yr old nephew. We absolutely love this museum. Friendly staff, lots to see and do especially on event days. We love the Victorian Christmas Fayre, great place to get gifts. Machinery is still in working order and they run them at certain... More

We went in half term as I was hoping it would be more interesting than when we went last year. It was such a disappointment, I loved it here when I was a child but they have not done anything to improve it. The transport part was shut, we just caught the last of the machines running for 5 minutes.... More

Spent a whole afternoon here, but could easily have spent the day. I love the street with homes throughout the ages on display...I could identify with all the eras :) There is brilliant art work on display and working steam engines, simply fabulous venue.

Disappointed that the transport section was closed for refurbishment, thogh this should be open shortly. Despite this there was plenty to see and to keep the grandchildren occupied. I liked the tram and trolley buses and the machinery. The kids liked the practical activities - printing, crayoning, shop, dressing up etc. Entry is free, Parking is free. It is a... More

Took the grandchildren here during the half-term holidays and they just loved the old steam engines. Just a shame that so few of them are started up as we only actually saw two machines in action one an engine and the other a spinning machine. We also enjoyed the old cottages which portray life in times gone by. Well worth... More
