Wow, it's a strange one. Packed full of interesting old bygones so it made for a fascinating visit, and I enjoyed tea and home made cake in the cafe. It's a wee bit rackety and dusty as you would expect with its lack of resources, but a huge credit to the vision and determination of the owner. If only it... More

This is a unique attraction - I have never seen anything like this. Some of my children found it slightly claustrophobic. It is a quite simply staggering collection of ephemera from the past century, carefully collected and displayed. Staff were welcoming and helpful - even to our dog! Overall, this is a place that gets into your heart and head:... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would recommend anyone who is interested in nostalgia to go too. So much to look at you can't take it in on one visit. excellently chaotic.

Amazing - the amount of stuff crammed in here. Almost an overload on the senses, but fascinating. Lovely cafe too for a well earned rest.

This is an extraordinary monument to the effort and drive of a single collector, Stella Mitchell, of all things demotic from c1920 to the present, with the emphasis on 1939+. To say the displays are dense would be an understatement; however, this is not the stuff of a hoarder, rather everything has been collected and carefully filtered. Duplication is not... More

This 'museum' was very disappointing. Too much rubbish cramped in to the displays. Could do with a mega cull. The owner could learn from the Castle museum in York. I also found the owner very overbearing with her constant reference to the 'financial hardship' of running the 'museum'. In fact I found her rather irritating. We will not be re-visiting... More

This must be high up in the ratings as one of those wacky museums. A labyrinth of passageways filled to brimming with allsorts of things that we remember from the past. From what we played with, washed with or worked with, and so much more. I am definitely going back as there was so much to look at and will... More

We thought this was just a quirky little local museum that would take an hour on the way to Stokesay Castle- ended up spending the best part of two hours enthralled by the collection and having a drink in the friendly cafe. This is not a museum for those who like priceless shiny antiques in glass cases; it is a... More

It's really good fun to go around, it requires repeat visits to see all the amazing stuff on display. I never tire of visiting this museum

This is a brilliant place to visit if antiques and memorabilia from the 40s onwards is to your taste. There are some fine articles from office equipment of the various decades as well as school materials amongst an enormous array of collected material on a whole host of subjects. A gem of a place. Will bring back many memories -... More
