We took two of our grandchildren here. They were fascinated by the various buildings and the old way of life. The windmill was the big attraction for them. It look impressive but it would have been nice to go inside (I think some renovation was going on). The wide variety of buildings was really nice. We will be back if... More

We took our 4 dogs (including one with limited mobility) and had a very nice afternoon wandering around the fantastic collection of buildings. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy our picnic. There was also a civil war event with very friendly and knowledge actors, although the muskets were rather loud! The phone box collection was fun section with all... More

When reading "Museum of Buildings", it sounds a little puzzling at first... but it really is a museum of buildings! A great range of historic buildings and exhibits to go and explore around the grounds. There's toilet facilities as well as a tea room and gift shop. There are also a few demonstrations on show in a few of the... More

This is a must visit for families who want to show their kids what it was like in the 'olden days' The windmill alone is worth the visit.

The collection... More
