Lots to see and do, from underground canal boat ride to coal-mine tour, and fish & chips to old school. Excellent mix of exhibits and activities, well worth the fee.

Visited the museum today with my sister and our three kids. We loved it! From the minute we walked into the entrance I could tell it was going to be a 'value for money experience'. Investment has been made in the attraction and the facilities are excellent. You leave the modern entrance and are transported immediately back in time. Lovely... More

Good place to visit if your in the area, great selection of things to see and do, explore the coal mine or take a ride on a team. If you want to see what school really use to be like in the old days go to the school and have a very harsh and sometimes funny lesson. Highlight of the... More

This is a fabulous place to visit however young or old you are. It does involve some walking but is very well set out and there are helpful maps. However long the queue is for the traditional fish and chips it is worth joining it you will not be disappointed

Visit the various shops, houses and other buildings, and interact with the employee staff who are all dressed in period costumes and will tell you... More
