This was our families first time visit to Milestones, we only find out about the place by reading a leaflet we found at another venue, sadly not at our holiday park, but's that's another story!!
After parking, we entered the venue after paying we went down the stairs back into the past.
Wow, so much to see a little something for everyone, our young one (5) enjoyed the post-office, to enter you needed to obtain a special key because the museum wish to keep the room for younger members to enjoy. Period clothing was also available to wear, he did look the part. Moving on, the collections of artefacts are amazing and take the older ones of us on a trip down memory lane. Many items that we once used on day to day where on show, from old fridges, old cookers, right up to modern ones in use today. Plenty of old vehicles on show. Shame that most of them had signs asking you not to climb on them. Watch for this as the leaflet say's you can board the vehicles. There was an old pub serving a good selection of drinks, a bit small but I guess this is how it was back then. The best bit, when you pay to enter if you pay an extra 70p you receive an old penny to exchange for 2 ounces of sweets from the 1940's sweetshop, plenty of varieties to choose from. Do you remember the old 1D penny slot machines? well your in for a treat here, down one-side of the venue has been given to many old 1D slot machines all in working order, you can change modern money into 1D's and have a good time, some machines like "what the butler saw" and many others be aware are "rude" but good fun.
This place is what you make of it, for us it provided an excellent day for two boys aged 5 & 15 and three adults one in his 40's the other in her 60's so you can imagine the stories we where told. Well worth revisiting and yes we will be going back :)
