  • Beautifully presented, great gardens, great day out, food was the best too! You'll need at least 4 or 5 hours here minimum. So much to see and beautifully displayed and not at all dusty and musty like...  more »
  • I have visited museums, "re-creation" villages, etc. This one is the tops. So well assembled, presented, and cared for. I had passed close by several times, without knowing of it. Well worth the visit...  more »
  • This is a truly unique museum, not just what is in (and outside) the buildings but the buildings themselves. We spent over 4 hours marvelling at it all. It is so well presented and the whole place is ...  more »

  • What an extraordinary place. Museums inside museums. A must see for everyone.
  • it was a really fun place there are some rare cars and bikes that u wont see anywhere else there is also some really cool old iteams
  • Well worth a visit plenty to see
  • To be honest I thought this was going to be lame but I was wrong. If you like history and museums THIS place is for you. We didn't have enough time to see everything so make sure you plan a full day to walk around. Eat at the tearoom! Delicious! DO NOT miss the old cars. Sooo cool! Glad we got out even for a couple hours. Only complaint is if you are open until 5 - have people there all day instead of close things at 3 and 4. That was disappointing. And have someone to answer history questions about the buildings and such. Worth the time to go!
  • This place is seriously mind boggling and the range of memorabilia here is unbelievable. You can easily spend all day. An absolute credit to the owners and everyone involved in the maintenance and upkeep. A must-see!
