This is a mammoth life's work of collection and a credit to the team who maintain and keep it running. There is literally something for everyone and as years pass it will become even more treasured.

There are a considerable amount of goodies to view here and the variety is spread across toys, planes, vehicles and many unique collectables.
Been a few times with different visitors and everybody has found something to catch their eye.
Can be chilly inside so dress warm if its a colder day and be prepared to spend quite a while going from shed to shed browsing.

This collection is absolutely mind boggling. Whether your interest is old cars, old tractors, old aircraft, old appliances, old toys, old dolls, old meccano, old dolls houses, old telephones, old machinery, old farming equipment it is covered. requires at least 2 days to see it all

If you have forgotten what the toys of your distant childhood were like you must visit this museum for a trip into history. An amazing plethora of toys and games on display together with a host of old cars, special- purpose vehicles, implements and aircraft. of a bygone age to bring back memories, as well.
