We have 2 very discerning children whose first reaction to the prospect of doing anything which doesn't involve watching TV or messaging friends on Instagram with suspicion. Normally, the museum, castle, gallery or event we drag them to eventually wins them round, especially if there a play area or interactive exhibits or a decent cafe. Sadly, not even the unexpected "treat" of seeing graphic police photographs of some infamous murder scenes and a 3 minute ride in a green goddess fire tender was enough to do the trick on this occasion. Disappointingly, the "Can we go home now?" pleas started within 10 minutes of our arrival.
This is certainly a trip down memory lane for the over 50s but it hasn't got enough child-centred interest to overcome its dusty, musty and slightly uncared for condition to make it a "must do" activity for families who live in the area. This is an heir-loom frozen in time and maintained on a shoe-string by many willing volunteers rather than a living and vibrant 21st century museum, so do adjust your expectations accordingly.
