  • A museum that tells the history of Garrets engineering. Lots of exhibits not necessarily displayed to their best, this is something they are working on. Many many activities for younger kids.
  • Very interesting place to visit and for little ones too for learning of how things are made and interactive things to make.
  • Fascinating insight into the history of both the local area and steam engines. Great exhibits and friendly staff.

  • Fantastic museum with helpful and knowledgeable volunteers.
