We nearly went away as the signage was confusing - the site is divided into two, with the main part being set behind Morrison's car park, with opening hours 10.30 - 5.00. We arrived at 11 am at the more obvious site next to the main road to see a sign saying it was only open from 12.00 - 4.00. We had a look at the other part on the off-chance and found it open, then by the time we had seen the film and had the tour, the other bit had opened up, so we saw it all in the end. It was really interesting and had some very keen and informative volunteers who talked to us about the engines and the industrial past. They did have some interactive stuff for the kids, but I felt that it was really more for slightly nerdy adults (like us). The huge beam engines, one of which was moving, were really impressive.
