Well, what can I say about this? The entrance to the museum scared me (especially after reading the reviews on here) - an old gate tied up with string which leads you to what looks like a scrapyard. It is to a degree - to me this place is the guy's hobby that he has transformed his house into, is passionate about it and wants to share it with everyone. There is no charge, so how can you complain??
You go up the stairs to the inside museum. We had our son who is 7, daughter who is 4 and cousin who is also 7 with us. There was a small area inside that had puzzles etc, and they happily played here for about half an hour with each other. Lots of memorabilia on the walls about all sorts of things. Then you go downstairs and there is a lifeboat dinghy which the kids can get in, a box of dressing up hats etc and an inflatable life raft. Again, all a bit bizarre but the kids LOVED it!!
Then you head outside - it is a health and safety nightmare, but if you look beyond that it is a great place for kids. If you don't like your kids climbing up trees or getting dirty etc then don't bring them here. There is a very small climbing area with a slide that they played on, a real life boat which they went on and in, a model Titanic which you can also go in (it is a bit strange with dummys the kids didnt like), and an underwater sea submarine - again which they went in.
We walked up the steps at the back which lead to the river to find somewhere for lunch, but the kids wanted to go back.
If my husband and I went here on our own, I think I would have been disappointed, but the kids loved it. Its free and as people have said on here before rather quirky!!
