  • Excellent museum. If you are even remotely interested in vehicles or machines, you must not miss this. Take a couple of hours to see all the exhibits. Don't forget to get out the back and see the tall ship.
  • Really interesting museum, fascinating for both adults and children. I would highly recommend, you can easily spend a couple hours there just looking at cars, trains, trams, bicycles, boats (models), etc. Some small interactive displays, but mostly just stuff to look at, nothing reading-heavy!
  • This is a wonderful museum, free entry, nice little cafe and a wealth of varied and interactive exhibits, including the lovely "hippie" peace van which is one of my favourite exhibits. Wheelchairs are offered for free, full disabled access and facilities.
  • Fab fun day out. Free entry loads on hands on things for the kids to do. Excellent cafe inside the tall ship.
  • Superb museum! very interactive: You can jump on a bus, get into a car, visit an old subway station or even walk into and old town centre. Had a great time there, I highly recommend.
