I was impressed with the friendliness of the people working at the museum, happy to show us into some of the vehicles and take pictures etc. We thought £7 was a touch expensive but it was interesting none the less.

Wow, where do I start. This place is amazing. From the moment we stepped into that place, it had a fantastic atmosphere. My son loved the hall of mirrors and played the instrument thingy (whatever it is). Inside, we were the only ones there. I won't lie, there was an air of creepy about walking around all those rides...all alone.... More

I live in scarborough and didn't know that this was here the old fair ground rides are great, the only thing i would say is you to get in then pay on some of the rides but still a good afternoon.
