Trainspotters paradise, the tram museum is like a living mausoleum to an era long gone. Highlights include the tram rides from bottom to top (4 trams running at any time from various backgrounds), the gas mask talk and the woodland walk which while short, is kept interesting. Tickets give 12 months entry, probably worth going back on WWII day which... More

A little bit difficult to find as not well signposted once you leave the main road, but once you get there it's a good attraction. We don't have little ones, but if you do, the play areas look to be excellent. Riding up and down on the trams was a lovely step back in time and we had a quiet... More

As a train and tram buff this is a brilliant day out. Period buildings such as a few corner shops, A victorian Pub and other buildings have been erected or moved to the site. All very well done. Nice tram Museum and the best bit was the trams themselves, was a choice of 3 running trams and they had authentic... More

We were recommended to visit the museum by a colleague and we weren't disappointed. A nostalgic visit to days gone by with a nice chunk of history, a trip on one of the old Blackpool trams, a cracking pint in the local and a great mix of friendly staff and engineers.

We went during the Edwardian weekend event and it was very good. This is our second visit as when you buy a ticket, you get the benefit of 12 months free return which makes the admission price good value for money. We ate at Rita's tearooms and the hot meals were tasty and arrived quickly despite it being busy. The... More
