This was our second visit and we loved it just as much as the first time. So much to see and do. The guides are really helpful and informative without being pushy. The kids were allowed to do all sorts of things from playing the pianola to operating a telephone switch board. One of the highlights are the cakes in... More

We took four grandchildren aged between 5 and 15 and they all found things to interest them. We even toasted a slice of bread in front of the open fire. It was great to see so many old toys - many of which I remember!!

Ha ha! There's always a little ambivalence at seeing things you recognise from your own past in a museum. But we're so glad you enjoyed your visit and thank you very much for writing a review. It means a lot to our volunteers. More

After reading other reviews, I was initially disappointed as we started our visit, for some had compared it Dudley's Black Country Museum or Iron Bridges Blist Hill, but one could tell from the map or the reception that it was not in the same league. But within a few minutes I realized that this museum has a charm all of... More

Thanks Bob for 'getting us', and for taking the time to write a review. We really hope you'll want to visit again in 2018 when we open two major new galleries that will be equally interactive and preserve the hands-on, get involved approach. It is so helpful to us that people like you take the time to tell others about... More

Good day out with many things to try out. It is a hands on museum my children enjoyed cooking toast on the fire the old fashioned way! Worth a visit and lots of information available from the volunteers. The telephone exchange at the end was very interesting and amazing how time has changed so quickly. Good value and an informative... More

Thanks for your review Joanne. It was certainly a week for hot buttered toast and we're sure the children will remember the experience. We're really grateful for every review. It all helps tell others what to expect and get the word out about the museum. More

What an amazing place, there was so much to see and learn about. Our grandchildren spent ages with the old telephones - the high point of the visit I think. It is not too big, the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. There is a cafe serving excellent food with home-made cakes.

Thanks Kate for such a lovely review of your visit. We always get a special thrill from seeing grandparents with their grandchildren, talking through their own lives and memories. Hope to welcome you again soon. More

Well thought out tour route with knowledgeable people to chat to about the exhibits. Many hands on items to play, listen to and press buttons to make them work. Follow that with all the working telephone exchanges, a lovely cup of tea with cake and then the transport section. Good value and good fun.

we liked the transport shed, telephone room, shopping street, and victorian farm house.The reason for our visit was to carry out a disability access audit so we had a tour of the whole site with the director, bill griffiths, as our guide. Looking forward to Xmas Carols in the Farmhouse and toasting muffins at the open cast iron kitchen range,... More
