“A good family day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We took our two grandchildren, aged 11 and 7, to the Museum during the school holidays and had a great day out. There were various recreated shops, a crofters cottage, a restored cottage and a blacksmith. There was also activities that the children could get involved in, decorating biscuits, dressing up in the photographers studio. The children also enjoyed the craft workshops where they made a paper bird and a garland.

The model village has been restored to a good standard and the museums are worth visiting, as is the farm and the tractors and farming implements.

All in all an excellent, reasonably priced, family day out.

“Look back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

We went here on a damp rainy day, and found lots to see, much out doors and dogs allowed, but lots of little work shops and cottages set out in bygone times. Also a bit of a museum of domestic items. Well worth the visit especially tied in with lunch at The Crown.

“A wonderful magical place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Over the years the Museum has moved forward and expanded from what was originally built. This museum is a must to take any age of children as the information about the area and life around in times gone by is exceptional.
A place not to be missed.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

The displays were set out in separate sections giving information on the local history, how a variety of industries/work was completed. The tools of each trade provided a good background. The staff were helpful and friendly.
