Thank you for the review and your support.
Just letting people know we one fire engine on display in the transport gallery and nothing outside as the weather would spoil them.
Excellent place in terms of education. Staff were helpful and the building was simple to get round. I came to visit this museum with friends and we enjoyed every moment. Will be returning again in the future.

Thank you for your lovely review - we hope to see you again but without the 20 year wait!

Thank you for visiting and for your detailed review.
With potential impending closure of this museum not too long ago, I was pleased to hear this did not happen. It is, however, disappointing that the museum hasn’t had a cash injection or a freedom to update the existing displays - which are now looking...More
