This is not a bad little museum, but at £8 a head it's a little steep. One imagines the price is inflated to make an offer to also buy a ticket to another museum in the city appear to be better value.
It covers a wide range of time, with lots of genuinely interesting artefacts in an interesting building. What really sold us on the visit was the promise of seeing the original Bagpus. This is in a tiny area of the overall museum, but it was great to see Emily's shop and all the characters in the window. As well as Noggin the Nog, Ivor the Engine, Pogles Wood and a couple of Clangers.
If you like Rupert the Bear, then there is a whole area dedicated to him.
We found the historic side interesting, but that did not engage the attention of our 14-year old.
