  • Great museum, with some unique attractions. Also the location for the annual Weyfest festival, an amazing weekend!
  • Loved it, went with my disabled husband in a wheelchair, my son, daughter-in-law grandchildren 5 and 9 years and 2 dogs, very friendly and accommodating staff, a trail for the children to look for things and write it down, lots of things for the children to do, toys old and new, play area, definitely worth another visit
  • I was the for The Big Meat BBQ, great weekend, great food.
  • Great place to step back in time and see what life used to be like.
  • Extremely expensive and a total waste of time, even had to pay extra for a trian ride, no appeal to children under 10
