  • Small but interesting, good quiz sheets to keep kids entertained and a nice playpark outside.
  • Great museum sharing the history of Barrow and the Furness Peninsular. Fun quizzes for children and lots lots of occasional exhibitions.
  • A severe disappointment. Publicity had talked about what a great attraction it was, but no mention of opening times. Checking with other Cumbrian publicity material said that summer hours were good - but having caught the train to Barrow and walked down to the site, we discovered it closed at 3.30pm at the height of the season. (We'd got there at 3.42pm expecting to get at least some time there.) We hung around for 20 minutes to give the kids a chance to do something - in that time we saw at least six other families turn up and go away disappointed.
