Antique stalls inside and out, but cramped inside. Parking good and well staffed. No real chance to see museum but would visit again for the education.

We have been here before but this time went to the Astoria Village candlelit evening event. It was lovely. A simple event for everyone to enjoy and the organisers are so friendly. The museum itself is well worth visiting. Lovely tea room.

What I like about the museum of power, is that they have a lot of events that go on there such as car shows and antique markets. If they don't have an event going on, you have the museum, which is interesting or you can...More

Had already been to the Military Museum nearby in Maldon with my 7yr old grandson and having time to spare decided to visit here. Really wish we hadnt. Entrance fee for one adult and one child was £7.00 and it's a ripoff. Nothing really worth...More

If you are into American cars or just fancy a few hours out with the family, this is the place to go, There are plenty of great cars to see, with food stands, and live entertainment.

Attended the Aerican Classic Car Show & also visited the Museum. All in all a great day out with activities to suit all tastes. Good range of Food & trade stalls as well. Would happily return.

We had a lovely visit to the museum yesterday. Despite not knowing much about engines myself, my husband is a big fan and he was fascinated. Our 16 month old daughter loved seeing all the machines too. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will...More

This museum, situated in an old pumping-station, is really for engine enthusiasts, there's not much more going on, although it does have a tea-room and a miniature railway. However, even if you don't know a crankshaft from a gudgeon-pin, there are some interesting things to...More

Really not to our taste, rather grubby & food not to the standard I would have expected. Will not be going back.More

Hi there, we're very sorry to hear of this. Is this just related to our tea room or did you go into the Museum as well? We would like to pass this onto the Tea Room manager as it is operated separately to the Museum....More
