Beautiful Romany caravans to see inside and out. Lots to learn about that way of life. Mrs Boswell was a joy to meet. Lovely cafe. Superb cup of tea.

This is such an interesting museum . Apart from the wonderful large exhibits of romany caravans, showmen's caravans etc. there are so many small items such as cookware, tools, ornaments that it is difficult to take it all in during one visit. There is a DVD showing where the late Gordon Boswell gives the history of many of the vardos (romany caravans) and we came away knowing so much more about the history of this way of life and the people. Wonderful!

I so enjoyed this museum and learning about the Romany way of life. I have gypsies in my ancestry so I was particularly keen to visit this museum. It was interesting seeing the old caravans and realising how much the caravans of today are modelled on them. It is such an unusual exhibition and the owners are so welcoming and friendly. Well worth a visit. I really loved it.

Visited last Sunday and really enjoyed it. Margaret and her daughter are so lovely. The Vardos are amazing. Margaret took time to talk to me and explain about all the different ones and their history which was very interesting. Also watched a DVD which was very informative. Spent over 2 hours there and at £6 was great value for money. Would definitely recommend.
