A very interesting place to visit. You will need a good couple of hours to do this visit justice. Parking is a little limited however. But well worth a visit for both children and adults.

Knowing nothing about Jute I learned so much from the displays and particularly enjoyed watching some of the machines get operated. Staff were very friendly and there were lots of interactive features too
