I was fascinated by the mixed reviews and had to have a look for myself today. Just to be clear there are no dancers. There is no steam. On the hour the water bubbles slightly and the ship's wheel spins. That's it. It's a lump of scrap iron in the middle of a concrete walk area which Jersey think so... More

Waited quite a few minutes for the hour to strike. Not a lot happened some small fountains started in the water and a the steering wheel revolved a little but that was it. Expected it to Steam but it did'nt. Perhaps it was not working properly that day

Well worth a visit to this museum for all ages. Older generation will love the trip back in time with all the cars, toys and household items we all had at one time or another.
