  • Great local museum, staff are very helpful throughout. This is a very child and disabled friendly facility, with plentiful parking and a lovely cafe. We went to see the Lego dinosaur special exhibition but took a ride on the train out to the lake as well. Parking is also available at the lake, with a short and pretty walk through the woods between the two places.
  • Great place. Packed with local industrial history. A must for kids , to shoe them what their grandparents and great grandparents had to live through. A great day out for the family.
  • Brilliantly educational and free admission for most of it unless you want to visit special exhibition. Voluntary donation only to help with upkeep. Very family friendly and interactive for all.
  • Nice little museum, went for the Brick Dino's exhibit, but spent some time in the museum and coffee shop. Small kids playground to keep them entertained too.
  • Paid a visit on the spur of the moment, ended up spending over 3 hours in the museum main building. It was too cold to do the outside so will be returning on a sunny day for that, along with a walk around the lake and Queen Elizabeth Country Park. If you don't want to pay the parking fee and you're able to walk ok then drive along to the Premier Inn and park there. I have to say I don't think £3.50 is an excessive parking fee, since there is no entry charge. I donated a fiver, bargain!
