Maybe you have to be a combination of Industrial Archaeologist and engineer to really get the ultimate out of this, but it is fascinating at many levels. Do not expect much more than models made to the sketches he did, but these models are great. Just working out how they work, and because he was using just the very simple materials and mechanical tools of the time, it absorbed my interest for a long time. I could have happily stayed longer but the other party members wanted to move on after two hours
The museum is split between the main block and the upper level of the castle (just 150metres away) and the view from the top of the castle is worth the climb. Can be very crowded at weekends and in the summer. We went on Tuesday in June and there were enough people to be 'occupied' but not enough to impede enjoyment.
