  • The steam museum was very interesting and john who was our guide has a wealth of knowledge about the history of steam. I would recommend this museum to young and old alike.
  • Well worth a visit, but only on Sundays as it's the only day of the week that the machines are on.
  • Great museum. Try to come on steam up days (Sunday) to see the engines working, very impressive.Kids really liked it too
  • Fascinating examples of well preserved original steam engines, polished and nicely displayed.
  • I just love it there. It has such a fab garden court yard tee room and the steam exhibition
