Spent a great day out here. Plenty to see and do even for an energetic 5 year old. Had lunch in the tea room reasonable prices and good quality. Even though the car park was full the village did not seem overcrowded. Recommend it and would go again especially as your ticket allows any number of visits within twelve months.

Just had a great day at Crich, riding the trams and discovering technology that has long gone. This was my birthday treat (64, so your never to old) and what a day it was, found out how to drive trams, need a weeks intensive course and then supervised control only. Lots of different types up to level 7. The location... More

We have been meaning to visit this place for 4 years and have never quite got around to it until yesterday. I really enjoyed our trip on the top deck of an open top tram and looking at the trams in the tram sheds was a real pleasure. The restoration of the trams is fantastic and full credit to the... More

Entrance fee a bit pricey but all staff are very friendly. Dog friendly attraction which was highly appreciated. A very good point is that when inside the attraction the prices were very reasonable and not hiked up. A fun day for all who attended

We visited with our children and my father, who shared his memories of trams while his eldest granddaughter told him what she learnt from an earlier visit to the museum. A lovely day, beautiful location and a lot to see and do. Tram rides and the trams in the sheds are a must. The visitor centre is engaging with plenty... More

Treat for mum to play on the trams. Once you paid your entrance fee you were given an old penny. This you gave to the conductor in exchange for your ticket for unlimited rides. Various trams were let out to play with the passengers and how smart they were too (the trams not the passengers). Our visit was on a... More
