  • The car-park had plenty of space and there was a short walk to the entrance. Access was very good with a wheelchair and there was a lift to take less mobile visitors to the upper floor. The museum is ...  more »

  • I had never had any inclination to visit but I decided to have a Tropic stand at an event. Goodness! How wrong I was! There is so much to see! It's a fascinating place. I definitely recommend the events, too. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Really enjoyed our day out here, lots to learn in the museum, very knowledgeable volunteers, and the old building is beautiful. We came for a craft fair... I'd like to do one of their steampunk weekends in future. They have some great events from time to time, worth keeping an eye on.
  • A lot of interesting history here. Plenty of open spaces and old machinery. Held their first Real Ale Festival yesterday. Great day out.
  • Its so much more than the history of bricks.The story starts when clay was formed,and will tell you how.The romans possibly started making bricks first but who knows? The museum explains how handmade bricks are made,and when the power of steam was discovered in this country,and why it led the industrial revolution how machines made the process so much more efficient.You will see the tools used,how the people lived throughout the life of the factory until it closed in the 1970's,and the reasons why it closed.The museum encompasses a lot more than how bricks were made.The steam engines work and this place shows how the modern manufacturing processes really improved and took us from hand made to machine made and the beginning of modern engineering and manufacturing.Im single but i could see the museum is child and wheelchair friendly.If you can time your visit when the steam engines are operating grab the chance.im of an age i recognise the smell of hot metal and steam power.well worth the visit.Take your time to read the information on the displays and you will walk away a little bit wiser,and appreciate how hard people had to work.Great effort brickwork museum and it's staff which i think are much more than that.
  • There is quite a bit to discover in this Victorian industrial gem.
