  • Very interesting, beautifully preserved engine and a wealth of industrial heritage information. Well worth a visit and it's free entry!
  • Fabulous industrial museum with a variety of exhibits. Free entry and parking off road or in the Space Centre carpark. A great way to while away 90 minutes.
  • The Christmas event is great. Toys , brass band and working machines. Took my daughter in the train. And it's not expensive. We loved it. Felt like Christmas had really begun.

  • It's good to see that the Snibston exhibitions are getting a new home here. :)
