Visited last weekend for the event. Was really disappointed with the museum. I think the admission charges were very expensive for what was included. My children were upset to hear that the two small train rides at the entrance and the "Make a brick" activity were charged as an extra as I refused to pay for them, having just paid for the admission tickets. The museum is very ramshackle and has no proper descriptions as to what is what and how the brickworks worked. The displays were very old-fashioned and the children were not interested in them. The cafe was good and reasonably priced and my children enjoyed the new play area. I believe that the museum has been awarded a lottery grant and that this will be spent on doing some of the very much needed improvements. However, until I hear that the museum has been renovated I will certainly not be back.
