Everyone should visit this museum .The size of the site is huge with lots to see of the long
lost Northern heritage. The tram ride takes you to the town with all the houses and shops of times long gone, all manned by reinactment staff. Wonderful to see how people shopped 70yrs ago . There is a garage ,pub,bank co-op and much more. Lovely inside the terraced
houses ,a solicitors and dentists I recall.
Also home farm is so well done with farmers wife baking beside a roaring coal fire.
The miners houses ,the old school ,chapel are wonderful not forgetting the memorable walk
into the coal face of the mine. So much more not listed and all of life a century ago.
The shop is great ,lots to buy like slates & stilus , top & whip and many more old toys.It is a great place to take visitors .
It may seem a little expensive but compared to a football ticket very reasonable. They have a huge site to maintain & its well worth the spend.
