I really enjoyed going here they had some real working machinery, facinating little fixtures and artifax that really are amusing to see. You reall must go along to this place if you are passing Watford. You wil find it really worth while.

Have lived in Watford all my life but only recently visited this Museum. There is no warm welcome when you arrive, in fact I felt like we were intruding by going in. There are lots of printing machines, football and brewing memorabilia and items from...More
