We booked the Museum's meeting room for our development team meeting as we wanted somewhere more interesting than your normal shared meeting space or hotel. It couldn't have been more perfect, the meeting room itself had everything we needed including a projector, lunch and refreshments was arranged for us and we had the museum to explore during lunch and breaks. The museum may be compact but there is a lot to see and the passion of both Rossie and Trevor was evident in how the collection is displayed and the pleasure show in demonstrating the various historic gadgets to the team. Lastly in terms of value for money the venue cost the same or less than your average corporate venue and a huge amount less than other museum style venues for a group of 10 or so.

We visited today and it was really interesting. It's in a new building and all the exhibits are well laid out and you can ask the volunteers to demonstrate some of them which we did. I'd forgotten how big and bulky the original mobiles were and how cumbersome a IBM golfball typewriter was. Well worth a visit.

This is a rare find which would be of interest to all ages, and as we are all 'of a certain age' we could remember using many of the exhibits!

I made a special journey (as I was in the area) to see this museum having watched it develop on Facebook. First off, the Post Code was recognised by my Sat Nav and took me straight there; so no trouble finding it. Large car park, although I was the first to arrive that day. There is plenty to see in the extremely tidy and well thought out display areas and it is much bigger than one imagines. Older people will love it but so will families. You are bound to see several items you will have owned in your youth. Memories!

We had seen this place on the way to another venue and said we would try it when it was open What a fabulous collection of gadgets and gizmos (Unfortunately I could remember a lot of them) Time flew and we had spent at least a couple of hours maybe nearer to 3 and the owner was also on hand to give us information on anything that was there.
