We spent a really enjoyable afternoon at the Steam Museum.
There was plenty to see and do for all ages.
A Christmas Fair was also taking place.

We visited a few days ago with our young son and friends with their children

It’s easy to find, and plenty of parking when we arrived at 10am.

Staff were very welcoming and gave us plenty of info. The layout is very good with plenty of interactive features too

Would recommend

Fascinating insight into the workings of the GWR in the halcyon days of customer service, trains running on time and the journey being the adventure. It's a good day out and useful foil from the outlet centre next door.

For hubbys birthday he wanted to visit STEAM museum so as a family we made the trip. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there and it was very interesting to hear about some of the things that went on by the volunteers who one of them I believed worked at the works. It is well worth a visit if you are interested in steam trains

This is a well laid out museum with little cameos explaining all the different jobs undertaken at the GWR works. On top of this are lovely polished steam locomotives, coaches and wagons. Highly recommended.
