  • Visited the museum just after the refurbishment had ended. Before the face lift it was a bit dreary but now it has a sleek and modern feel. It presents information in a clearer and more entertaining way by using interaction tablets, audio and noises for the display. The only downfalls was that you could not find the entrance as it was tucked away in the back of the property and there was no signs. Walking around the museum seemed confusing at times as we couldn't find ourselves on the map. We found it difficult to find which ways to go in some of the rooms due to lack of signs/unclear signs. As we came just as it opened back up again we entered for free, but the price is about 6 pounds now I believe. I wouldn't pay that as there was not enough content in the museum that interested me. A lower price or donation only could work better.
  • Nicely laid out museum with much more than a collection of old tools. Horse sculpture made from scrap iron was great.
  • A bit hard to find but well worth the effort would recommend this place to anyone
  • We had a nice walk around the museum, well worth the visit.
  • The refurb looks fantastic. Really enjoyed all the clips in the celebration room.
