  • Fun free place to take young children, mainly due to the sewer pipe and sectioned flushing toilet complete with plastic pooh, to be dropped into the toilet, flushed then recovered by delighted children. Amazing building and beam engine as well.
  • Engineering museum. If you live a long way from Leicester you may be dissappointed. However, its located next door to the space centre so it can make a good addition to a day out.
  • Great place to visit but sadly no cafe.
  • My 3 and 8 years old children loved it, and the older one asked to come again when we left.
  • Great museum. Good to go when the train is running
