  • Fantastic display. Excellent selection of working engines. Very much worth a visit.
  • Excellent enthusiastic engine explainers !
  • Great museum, well laid out, lots to see. It was much bigger than I though and you get free talks and demonstrations by a dedicated bunch of enthusiasts. Running huge industrial diesels, I learned thing I didn't know and I though I knew about engines. Goes from the very first engines right through to the present day. An excellent couple of hours well spent :-) Thanks guys.....
  • Really loved this place. It's bigger than I expected. Hundreds of gas, diesel and petrol engines from the first to current - with a few steam engines to start the story. A hidden treasure. Combine a trip here with a walk along the canal and disused railway nearby. Perfect for engine enthusiasts, big kids like me and families of all ages. Staff are lovely too. Big thanks to Don Foden today for our grande tour
  • If you like engines this is the place to be. Wide variety of working engines, knowledgeable staff, cafe, gift shop all with a relaxed atmosphere.
