Our family consists of two adults, a 15 year old, and a nine year old. Both children are homeschooled now. We were concerned that the teenager would find the place boring. We were so wrong! He never touched his mobile phone at all!! As we walked up the stairs, we went to the first floor, where the children enjoyed pumping the water round the mock up systems, and looking at the processes for iron making etc. There is so much to see, and so much information, but it is far from boring. The layouts are such that they keep your interest up as you go along. The bit the children enjoyed was the bell ringing in the newly renovated bell tower as we reached the top floor! perfect timing! I was amazed at how many different types of iron furniture could be constructed! It never crossed my mind about the back plates of fires being made of iron and beautifully crafted and decorated. I was envious of the gorgeous garden benches! all in all, very factual, but in no way boring. Well worth a good hour or so wandering around.
