Thanks very much for your review. The holiday activities are really popular and there are a lot of interactive displays in the museum including a pianola! The museum is really popular for school visits with the same engaging and welcoming staff.

We attended the Poetry and music event which Angela Topping organised. The music from Gordon Tyrrall was excellent and the poems read were very high quality. Will certainly be visiting again next year.

Nice museum in a historic building. The displays on the buildings origins as a workhouse. And on the areas industrial history were interesting. The lady on the entrance desk was super helpful and friendly. Admission prices are reasonable and there is free parking.
