    Absolutely loved our afternoon here! My toddler thoroughly enjoyed walking around looking at the planes and helicopters. My favourite was the Vulcan.
    The inside of the museum (3 buildings) were really interesting and informative. I could have spent hours here reading all the information!
    Would be a super place to bring children on a school trip too!
    All the staff were really friendly and would stop to chat.
    We were lucky it was such a sunny afternoon so we sat outside the cafe with a cup of tea and a slice of shortbread- delicious!
    We thought it was a brilliant day out and highly recommend!

    This was a fabulous visit that exceeded our expectations. It was what we can only call a visit of discovery. The volunteers at the Museum are so dedicated and knowledgeable and were able to guide us through the working exhibits. Not all the clocks & watches are in working order but their creation is of great importance in the history of timekeeping.

    Five clocks in particular stood out:
    - the water clock
    - the wooden clock of Benjamin Franklin
    - the cricket clock
    - the Chinese dragon boat clock
    - the modern clock with 3 pendulums

    We spent about a good hour & a half in the Museum talking with the volunteers, but as more more people came in, we made our way around the rest of the rooms ourselves. A truly fascinating and interesting visit. There is a small selection of affordable gifts and books available too.

    We visited the Town Hall museum and were blown away. It was a small museum and free but exhibits were excellent as was the lady who showed us around.

    We spent a happy hour viewing the museum and the lady asked if we would like to see the ballroom and mayoral rooms which were amazing. The Little House was a sight to behold. Well worth a visit.

    The Dukes Wood Oil Museum has now been abandoned, but is thriving as an overgown nature reserve, with a muddy path that winds its way through the woods past the old nodding donkeys.
    Working in oil fields myself, i found the place interesting, but errie. Very sad that the museum has relocated.
    I think i counted approximately 10 nodding donkeys on my way around, along with a statue of a roughneck, and ponds. Lots of info plaques.
    Hopefully someone will keep the place maintained as it is, otherwise it may be lost for ever.
    Small layby next to the main road, but no signposts marking the way in.
