  • Good place to visit and recall days gone by. Very educational for young people. Old fashion fair ground. Fish and chips cooked in Beef dripping fabulous. I would suggest that you purchase a museum passport. All 10 museums has many times as you want over the twelve months.
  • Well worth visiting. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Easy to get to, parking is well laid out. The guides are really helpful and there are lots to see. Can be fun for the kids to change to old money for the visit.
