  • What an amazing place. The more you look the more you see. The level of detail is fascinating. The museum is a snapshot of a time gone by and it's brought to life not only by the audio guides availabl...  more »
  • A very interesting visit, immaculate modelling taking you back in history to England in the 1920's. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • With a modest look from the outside, going in reveals to be a real treat for those who enjoy scale model dioramas. The museum features three main diorama scenes of different sizes who will keep you busy admiring the details for quite sometime. Along side them, you will find small exhibits, detailing information on their history and construction. In a way, this museum pulls at some of the nostalgia strings that many of us have and is a must for enthusiasts. For people who aren't so, you might want to give it a pass. While, with kids, the museum tries to engage them via a game of spot where they are given a sheet with multiple details listed, with the little ones having to spot them all, adults aren't as easy to entertain if they don't have a minimal interest on it.
  • Fantastic way to spend a few hours with the kids. A really engaging experience. Well worth a visit.
  • Displays very interesting but too high up. Kids struggle to see, as do adults. Would be lovely to be able to look down across them.
  • So much dedication, patience and hard work. Amazing!
  • Step back in time with the superb Vale scene.
