  • Took the kids to the museum which they thoroughly enjoyed and we were also able to tie it in with a train journey through to Shildon railway museum from the handy platform. Great day.  more »
  • Well put together and worth a visit. Spent 2hrs there yesterday. Plenty of people visiting despite the weather. Some refreshments available in the shop but would have liked to see the cafe open.  more »
