Spent a lovely Friday morning at this collection. Entry fee £7 for adults, children 5 and under free so well worth the money for the time we spent. The mirrors in the entrance corridor kept my two girls entertained for 10 mins before we even entered the exhibition rooms! We arrived at 10am which is when the museum opens and... More

Just want to say a huge thank you to the person who has invested in saving and restoring this wonderful collection of Fairground memorabilia (and old cars, child's caravan, amazing models of transport, steam engines...). The penny arcade games and rides brought back memories of happy days at the fair and seaside. One can enjoy rides like the Thriller, bumper... More

We spent a lovely Wednesday afternoon at the tea dance at this collection. We are keen dancers and usually try to find a local dance when we are on holiday but, never expected such fun. The person who has set this place up has obviously spent a lot of time and money setting up this collection of fairground rides and... More

Hi Guys, Girls and attractions!!! Just wanted to say what a great time we had when we visited with my son on Friday. He especially liked the kiddies area with the wooden train and if the 'Tortoise' caravan ever wants a new owner or even a trip out for the week, let me know as I would love to holiday... More

The museum includes a superb and extensive range of Steam showman engines,fairground organs,rides and related items all under cover. The tea dance to a wurlitzer organ played by a resident organist was excellent. There is... More

Visited this fair collection on Sunday when the rain was coming down in sheets. Inside some of the members were busy mopping up flood damage but this did not spoil any of the enjoyment of the day. The vintage cars and motorcycles, the traction engines and the many different organs all taking a turn at playing songs and bringing back... More

What a collection of great Wurlitzer's, fair ground organs and fair ground rides. We arrived just before lunch and in fact had lunch in the on site cafe watching two great young men play the Wurlitzer organs. In between recitals (played perfectly) the fair ground organs one by one played, after a lovely lunch we had a go on the... More
