Very interesting place to visit. The guide was very informative and plesant.

Tidy and well looked after.

Quite a small place but 'lots of it'.

the little train is great to ride on, but it only runs once a month. my little son loved the ride on a train. it was raining unfortunately, but they were kind and gave us huge umbrellas to hold above us. museum is quite small.

A rather unusual sort of museum but interesting and educational too. Not only do you learn a lot of local facts, but you also learn some generic stuff, such as where the phrase 19 to the dozen comes from. Naturally, I wont tell you, so you'll have to pop along yourself. Very nice, proper tea served there with very friendly and obviously involved staff on site. it also hosts some interesting special events, such as car/horse shows.

We went to an Event Day at this museum and it was really lovely! The engine (which they were swtiching on every hour) was absolutely amazing. The museum is small but perfect. You can tell its being very well cared for by passionate enthusiasts, we were really pleasantly surprised - well worth a look! (Only downside on the day we went the cafe was chaos and they could cope at all, maybe it was a freak incident though?)

Having been an engineer in another life, I came across this place on the web and decided to include it on a day out. The museum is set in attractive grounds in an old water pumping station and carries a wide variety of engineering related memorabilia. There are several cut-away full size motorised exhibits, showing with excellent clarity just how they work, and lots of displays, including possibly the oldest still-working electric motor in the world!

There's a narrow gauge steam railway in the grounds, usually in steam at the weekends, and the whole project is an absolute must-visit for anyone interested in engineering.
