  • Very interesting museum we all loved the reconstructed Victorian streets. The entrance tickets are a reasonable price. There is a large free car park . And in the adjoining gate house a great cafe.
  • A good museum not the biggest but good the Victorian Street was fun to look around plus crime and punishment section was interesting
  • Really interesting Victorian age museum. Feels like to be in the 19th century, old high street, shops, boutiques. Staff is really friendly. Good for babies as well
  • Great fun for kids. Also good for some local history.
  • Great museum for an hour or two. Liked the gallery exhibition upstairs. Cafe is nice to!
