Reviewed September 5, 2012

Great little museum packed with exhibits to delight and entertain. Even my wife was, unusually for her, interested.

“Interesting free museum”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Lots of interesting exhibits and a few interactive ones. Quite busy as it was a rainy day but great as it is free to get in.

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Housed inside a tastefully decorated Edwardian power station this hidden museum is fun for all ages and ideal for a couple of hours escapism on a wet day. Living locally we particularly enjoyed climbing aboard the main attraction, a beautifully restored Bournemouth tram. There are also many old household appliances that will bring back fond memories for those over a certain age and provide much amusement for the younger generation!

Admission is free but if you want a more quiet appreciation of life gone by, I suggest avoiding the school holidays.

“Good value & great for children”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

An excellent place to take children. It's not huge but enough to keep them amused for an hour or two and very reasonable admission prices.
