My husband young daughter and I visited here about 14 years ago and we had thoroughly enjoyed it.
So as we were in the area again we thought we would have a look and see how it had improved.
We were very disappointed.
The price was extremely expensive. The place was very cluttered with no order to it. Some of the exhibits were missing and many of the exhibits were unlit, thus making them very difficult to see.
There were only a few interactive exhibits and some of these didn't work either. There appeared to be less outside from what we can remember on our previous visit.
In the period house exhibit we observed modern tins of paint thus spoiling the whole vision they were trying to create.
There were staff milling around but no one acknowledged us as visitors.
The cafe was adequate but one of the benches outside was broken and with a sign advising not to use. If the bench was unsafe it should have been removed.
So although it has a lot of interesting information and we did spend a lot of time there, I don't think we will be going back.
