This museum is well worth going to see. There is no hurry for you to study and marvel at the exhibits. It is such a good collection of pre and war time items, and gives such a feel for what our parents and grandparents went through during the war (and after) with rationing, the blitz, clothing, laundry to name but a few and the make do and mend which was so important. Sit in an Anderson shelter with the sounds of bombs going off, experience the fear that the occupants felt not knowing what was going on outside during a raid. The whole experience is quite sobering but also amusing with some of the items on show. Try your hand at sending morse code. An museum not to missed.

Great museum how life was during WWII. Very well laid out. Torches a lovely touch. A lot of work has gone into this collection by the owner. Great to visit on a rainy day.

If you love the home front this museum is for you. I visited on my own and was given a torch so I could look into the corners as it has the feel of being in a street during the night, looking into the shops. This reminded me a bit of the street at the castle museum in york. There are some really interesting film clips to help you "make do and mend". It was only £3.25 to enter and the lovely lady at the entrance knocked 25p off as I was following a school party round. The little gift shop was also good value. I would go again. Just brilliant.

We really enjoyed this. The owner turned a childhood interest and collection into a museum and his job. Really well done, an enjoyable hour or so was spent on a wet morning.

Wonderful collection. Very good labelling for both adults and children. Despite remembering ration books and information films we learnt a lot. The curator was very pleasant' He has done a good job.
