Be prepared for a surprise. This is not just a model railway, it is a visual historical record of rural life ninety years ago. The modelling demonstrated in the the village and the countryside scenes is exceptional. So much to see. And the keen and knowledgeable volunteers will draw your attention to minute details that you might otherwise have missed. You could spend many fascinating hours here. Another visitor we spoke to was preparing to do just that! There's a cafe for light refreshments and a pub serving food nearby. Usually open weekends and school holidays but check website for opening arrangements because of current restrictions - pendonmuseum.com.

Superb if you understand modelling. Worth a visit if you appreciate quality models. It takes you back in time and is explained by knowledgable volunteers. I suggest you go round twice as you miss a lot the first time. Have a tea in small cafe area and go round again. A must place to visit for all modellers.

A great little museum with fabulous historical railway layouts and run by enthusiastic and very helpful volunteers. 4 year old granddaughter loved it and was given her own step so she could see everything without being lifted up. Great value.

Took our 2 granddaughters aged 5 and 7 to Pendon Museum - they loved it especially as there were questions to answer as they went around and a prize at the end! There are craft sessions in the school holidays which they hope to go to and we would certainly recommend it as a good family time together.

One of those cute, off the beaten track tourist attractions created by fans for fans. Well signposted. Limited parking, especially at the weekend. Will pass an hour or two depending on your interest level or that of your group.
