“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Not very large inside and the displays were a bit amateurish. Only took about an hour to do the whole tour.
Some quite modern pieces thrown in to make it look full.

“Very enjoyable and educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

A very good experience for all the family it shows how we lived before technology began to take over, and reminded me of my own childhood and adolescence, plus it is educational for children and if the weather is not perfect what a lovely way to spend some time instead of the usual slot machines and arcades that are in abundance everywhere along the front

“Revives your memories”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a good visit for people born before 1970's. to remember loads of things that we hadn't thought of in years. I think younger visitors would not believe how we lived.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The platter for 2 starts the adventure. It is absolutely delicious and the staff are just brilliant. Then into the yesterworld museum. It brings back so many memories and the free carousel ride at the end really does take you back to your childhood. A brilliant day out.
