My husband and I took my Mother in Law here as part of a pre-Mothers Day out; it was gloriously sunny and warm and we had a fabulous time. Highlights for us were (randomly) the telephone box collection, which sounds pretty dull but was actually so nice to see, as well as the toll house with the living actors, and... More

Great place to spend 4 hours walking around the different buildings. The Windmill was my highlight along with the excellent tearooms. We had taken the grandchildren and they were both enlightened and entertained.

My Wife and I visited using a Groupon Coupon and found the Museum to be a worthwhile visit. The Staff and Volunteers were very welcoming and friendly and strolling around the uncrowded site looking at the preserved buildings was very interesting and relaxing. The Post Mill was particularly good and we were shown around by one of the enthousiastic volunteers.... More

I used to volunteer at this museum way back in the 1980s - how it has changed! A great day out for the family - very interesting - especially the prefab project and the phone boxes. Would recommend.

This was booked as a groupon deal so was very good value for money. At the normal price I would still recommend a visit. The buildings are well laid out and plenty of interpretation panels are there to guide you. My only comment there would be to say that these panels are outside the buildings so if it is raining...

despite today;s weather, we had a fantastic time at the museum today. Thank you so much for such a warm welcome, we very much enjoyed taking to the guides in the chapel and windmill. The tea room was a delight, proper bread (lovely soft door steps), china cups with proper tea and fab hunks of cake. My husband loved the... More

Museum is a group of buildings spread out over a couple of acres. Interesting to see the stages of preservation & restoration gone into them. Windmill was interesting & a knowledgeable guide showed us round. The cafe served good food & the service was also good.
