Ranked #5 of 14 things to do in Enfield
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 July 2017

This is a quirky little museum that is great f you like cars, model trains and fire engines. They are open Tuesday and the last Sunday of the month and then at certain other times as per their website. It is currently £4 to get in with kids free so its a good place to spend a morning. My 4 year old loves the model railway which is housed in an old train carriage. The whole thing is in an old pumping station and if you are very lucky you can go downstairs to see the original well which is housed under the building. Its 200 feet deep and amazing! Its a basic no frills sort of museum run by enthusiasts so don't be expecting rides for the kids and Disney style entertainment but it is worth a visit with kids.

I have been visiting this museum on a yearly basis for the past 20 years or so, virtually since it's inception, and can only say that what has been achieved by the volunteers during that time is unbelievable. The first time I visited the whole area was in a turmoil as the building work had only just begun and I was shown a massive hole in the ground that was the original pump that lifted the water up to the desired level so that it could be directed into the New River I think it was. I was so impressed with the enthusiasm of the club members that I asked if they would like to exhibit my motorcycles when they were finished. They were most agreeable and a few years later they were put on display where The Calthorpe is still an exhibit. The scope of cars, bikes, bicycles, trucks, model trains, aircraft pedal cars, dolls etc. is out of this world and anybody that is interested in this type of hobby that visits this museum, and comes away disappointed, I feel very sorry for.

This museum is crammed with British nostalgia. The old motorbikes were particularly splendid. The building is of interest as an old pump house for the New River canal and you can still see some of the old works. The deep well is a 'must see' ask someone in the museum shop to show you. We had a great cup of tea in the cosy cafe and the food looked very decent too. The museum has a big outdoor space and numerous large motor exhibits in an old railway yard attached to the pump house, my teenagers spent ages in the model railway shed with the enthusiasts. We had a great family Sunday outing - thank you to the team of volunteers who run this.

Sadly it is not open very often as it is run by volunteers. It is much bigger then front view with an extensive array of old vehicles as well as old shops & railway station. Including a miniature train village set in an old railway car at the back. Loved the old gas station still standing with an old vehicle out front. They do have a tearoom which was closing as we only arrived later on the day.
