This museum has an old fashioned village/town setting with lots of different trams which you can ride on all day long if you like. This is one awesome day out for the family with a museum hall displaying lots of old trams and other relics. There's the old tin mine area, a fabulous woodland walk plus a pub restaurant and...

I would recommend a dry day but if it does rain you can have dinner or see the tram sheds or the museum while the rain passes.There are plenty of trams running and there is a short walk through the wooded area. The 40's weekend is very good and moving when the ex war parade down the line. People say... More

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back between 18th March and 5 November 2017. We don't believe it is expensive as you can return as many times as you wish within 12 months (excluding the World War II / 1940s events). More

The tramway museum is a fantastic place to visit for people of all ages. From tram rides and woodland walks to an onsite pub and soft play. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Had an excellent day visiting Crich something for everyone young and old. Lots more going on other than trams. And well done to who ever took the time to decorate the woodland walk for Halloween. Crich is now closed for the winter but worth visiting when it reopens. Well done Crich

We visited the museum about thirty years ago as children and went again as a family of nine (including a 4 year old and 18 month old). We were not disappointed. We enjoyed every aspect of our day. We took a picnic and there were plenty of places to sit down and eat it. We had an afternoon drink in... More

A good way to spend three to four hours. The highlight of the trip is a ride on one of the trams, but there is much more to do, especially if visiting in the school holidays when there are extra events taking place. A good dose of nostalgia in the sweet shop, lovely food from the tea room and you... More
