We didn't really know what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised by the exhibition and what it had to offer. It is an amazing history lesson about life through centuries with a large number of original items on display. The little post office and village shop are so pleasing with the original boxes and brands which have been... More

We visited as a group of 20 on a cold December morning and were astonished that the entry was free - " ... because it's Christmas and we've got some special demonstrations on." We had been advised to leave at least two hours to take everything in and it is true; the museum is a bit like the Tardis. From... More

Take your time, and if possible, go when it's quiet. Fascinating workshops and homes to browse round. Well explained and write-ups. If you're in the mood, it will transport you back in time.

I visited the museum for a second time this year and expected to use my previous ticket again as I had been promised at my first visit and also advertised. My ticket was rudely refused on the grounds that one of the museum staff had not filled in the right form. I complained in writing and got back an unsatisfactory... More

Visited on recommendation of holiday property bond visitors. Very rainy cold day but a good way to spend it with friendly service and a lot to see. Some of our older 80+ group felt parts were more like a trip down memory lane especially the old shop and its contents. Cafe very quiet and pub next door serving excellent food.

Deceptively bigger than it looks from the front, this musuem is visited often by school trips, they even have classrooms onsite. There were at least two when we visited and they were no bother. Some of the buildings have been dismantled and rebuilt at the musuem making a street like scene to walk around and learn how people used to... More

We had an enjoyable and interesting visit to this little museum. Some really interesting buildings showing authentic things from a past era. The post office and general dealers had a wealth of stock which caused good conversations with other visitors. The other buildings from various times gave a real feeling of history. The funeral directors and the photography premises were... More
