  • This was really excellent. They had countless exhibits dating back to the late 1890's right up to the late 1980's. Just about every exhibit had been restored to working condition and a number of the exhibits were interactive and you could operate them. They had stuff from the kitchen, the laundry, the office, from laboratories, old pianos, pianolas, radiograms, record players, as well as old cars and motorbikes, old farm equipment and old workshop equipment. It was quite nostalgic to see a lot of stuff that I saw and used growing up in the 1960's. All of the volunteers were extremely friendly and helpfull. Extremely cheap entry at only $9 and worth every cent of the admission price.
  • Awesome learning center devoted to all things science and electricity. Awesome place for young kids to learn about the wonders of electricity and physics.
  • Awesome place seeing old technology brings back a lot of memory of my younger days as a kid that place is mind blowing, this place is worth a visit for young kids seeing old technology and comparing thing to the present day.
  • What an awesome place and an awesome team. We had a my sons 6th birthday party there this morning and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. I highly recommend the Faraday Centre for anyone, for any reason or no reason at all.
  • Great hand-on museum with nice people who explain things well!
