What a amazing little museum, such good value, did not know there was so much to find out about lawnmowers, loads crammed in to this tiny museum, worth every penny, lovely place and staff, a classic museum, nowhere compares with it.

To be honest, the thought of a lawnmower museum hadn't crossed my mind before it showed up on the satnav PoI, but this was an interesting half hour. They're about to refurbish, which will benefit the current crowded, rather scruffy layout, but there's some real gems here. And the enthusiastic staff are a joy.

Where to start.....the wife made me do it. A wonderful lady greeted us and showed us where to start with the audio tour. So many famous names and wonderful machines. Brian May made me laugh with his letter which along with others is in the wall. Anyway long and short if it's raining and you're curious pop in, but be... More

Odd museum , but worth a visit.. Engineers will like this , although one visit is enough. More interesting due to the novelty... Racing aspect was interesting and looks fun!

Only the English would have a museum like this. I just had to go as I didn't believe it was true. Well my friends it really does exist. I'm now looking for the sand museum in Blackpool

I really like odd museums and this did not disappoint. A little cold and damp but hey this is about lawnmowers! The staff were fantastic and the curator of the museum was happy to chat and answer questions. For £2 it's a must if your in Southport, I went specifically to see it! I was in Preston anyway so not... More

A rather surprising collection, but some of these machines really are quite beautiful in their own way and all are clever pieces of engineering

What an amazing collection of lawnmowers and garden machinery! Located away from the fashionable shopping areas of Southport, this little museum is home to a collection of mowers ranging from those donated by the rich and famous (Prince Charles, for one), to the first robotic and electric models, and all types made since the first one was invented in 1830....

Where else can you find Joe Pasquale's strimmer, Lee Mack's dibber and Nicholas Parsons' secateurs? And all for £2 (or free if you have a Blue Peter Badge). This is an eccentric and genuinely interesting place. You must go there, just to say you've been. Totally bonkers in a very English way.
