Lovely place. Staff are friendly. Clean and tidy offering light snacks. Tea and cake etc
The Museum of Cannock Chase tells the story of the surrounding area and some of it's notable persons in a small and compact two floor layout. Entry is free, as is car parking. Something of a rarity! Downstairs there's a brief history of the land, war related anecdotes and props, a coffee shop and a temporary exhibit room which changes according to the schedule of events. Upstairs you'll find a collection of nostalgic toys and games behind glass, whilst jutting off from here is a games room where children can dive in and play. The final room is dedicated to the importance of the now deceased coal mining industry. You can don a hard hat and have a wander through a short low ceilinged mine passage and see some of the equipment used by the mine works. Overall, it's heavy on the text so young children will probably get quickly bored and tend towards to the toys, but for adults it's a good way to spend an hour or so all for the price of an optional donation. You can't say fairer than that really.
It's kind of a big deal
