  • Good visit - Thanks to the staff @ the Museum - I dropped off a photo to them of the Erection Shop Employees around 60 of them with their names - photo around Circa1900
  • Visited for the first time though it is not so far from us in October half term for their Steam final fling. Very interesting museum and amazed at the heavy engineering that went on here in the East. With the gift aid entry fee you actually get a years entry so I guess we'll be back next year sometime.
  • Fabulous, wonderful, educational. Loads of hands on activities for the kids. We cannot recommend The Long Shop enough.
  • Very interesting local history but a little ad-hoc and would benefit from better structure and organisation. Well worth a visit though.
  • Interesting place to visit, clear displays and discovered a lot about Garrett we didn't know Plenty of activities to interest children Friendly staff
