A good pair of shoes and stamina are required for this, fascinating but enormous, archive of buildings, business, transport & industry. Most of what you see has been rescued from oblivion and rebuilt as an understandable representation of (mainly) 19C life & times. From Banks to Sweet Shops and on to Coal Mines, Tramlines & Railways, it's all there - much fully functional.
For full immersion in this Internationally important National record - find, beg, borrow, hire or s****, appropriate togs (dress) and be part of the whole experience. Find out if your kids want to be miniature sailors, spoilt brats of the gentry or mudlarks & guttersnipes. Could be very revealing!
This is a full day visit so, plan to be exhausted.
