We visited previously about 10 years ago, and as expected there are some extra things to see. It's not cheap but you could spend the day here. The people who are "enactors" are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all different aspects of the Museum and there is a lot to learn. They share their jobs and move from shops to the bank or school. Always sharing little bits of information. All the buildings have been brought from other sites and rebuilt in the correct period style. The newest attraction is the hall used by the Silver Band and I imagine there will be outdoor concerts from time to time. We understand due to Lottery funding they will be stabling some pit ponies in the future, for more authenticity.
