Visited the museum over the Easter weekend had a wonderfull experience... there is a regular shanti festival over the 4 days which truly brings the museum to life the historic crafts and other activities singing and live music all around the site and in an open bar.......... a truly magical experience already got next year's visit booked when the historic boat gather also takes place can't wait.
Excellent fun. My two sons 5 and 7 loved it as did Grandad. My daughter, my mother and I liked the boat trip best. Lovely food in cafe too and staff all friendly.
Informative volanteer staff. Exellent displays. Boat trip was brill. Very moving story about Jose his wife and dolly their horse. Worth the trip from Dorset.
Well worth a visit, lots to see if you are interested in canals and their social history. Visited on opening weekend and were fortunate to hear a performance by their current artist in residence, Francesca Millican_Slater describing her walk along the canal from Birmingham to Ellesmere Port ; a spell binding performance.
Such an interesting place. Lots to see
