Visited this weekend with family including three grandchildren aged between 5 and 6.
The staff who greeted us were attentive, informative and very pleasant. They listened to the children and asked if they would like to take part in a quiz. They were given a clipboard and a list of items to spot in the museum for each letter of the alphabet. We all enjoyed looking at all the exhibits and seeing how life has changed over the years. All the outdoor and indoor exhibits were very interesting and the children managed to find something for each letter (including 'exit' for the letter X!!). They all received a badge for completing the quiz.
Some of the outdoor play area was closed for maintenance but the children enjoyed playing while we had a welcome cup of tea sitting watching them.
There is no charge for admission. If you haven't visited it before do so. It's only a few minutes walk from the castle where we had also visited but we enjoyed the Museum of Village Life more.
