“Very interesting and free”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited during a model truck show with our 3 year old. Great day out. Lots to see and good play park. Will definitely return when not as busy to spend more time at the coal mine.

“Holiday Monday”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Although it was the usual wet Bank Holiday weather, the staff at Summerlee were happy and cheerful which brightened up our visit. The Birds of Prey were a fantastic draw to our granddaughter who was not only able to hold but able to place little Oscar back on his perch - fantastic.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Lots to do and see in this wonderful museum and park. From the working machinery to the displays of local life, the miners cottages, the trip down the mine and a tram ride make this a great day out and, apart from the tram ride, it's all free. The displays are excellent and there is a good reasonably priced café and gift shop.
