Wonderful family friendly attraction - staff in period costumes always make visitors feel transported into the past very friendly and knowledgeable
You could spend all day at the museum as there are several areas to visit and many activities and demonstrations taking place daily
Riding on the trams/buses is always a treat although they can be very busy at certain times of the day/ year (school holidays etc) so if you want to get the tram you may have to wait a few minutes for the next one if it's busy
Make sure you wear walking shoes as the museum is large and covers several different 'areas'
The circular walk around the museum is often overlooked by visitors but is nonetheless a unique and enjoyable way to experience the museum - If the sun is shining!
Dogs allowed on leads although to best experience the museum if this is your first visit I would not recommend taking a dog as there are several houses/ shops etc especially in the town and pit village , which are quite small and unsuitable to take dogs inside them.
We always stop at the old fashioned sweet shop in the town to experience sweet making demos and taste testing - the best part of visiting the museum :)
