  • I went to Pendon Museum on 25th August with colleagues from our model railway society to visit this attraction. I was surprised how tucked away in the back streets it was ! There are three layouts to ...  read more »
  • I gave my friend Kate the choice of buying new shoes, or visiting your museum. For some reason she chose the museum and I am pleased that she did.Although I am not a railway enthusiast I found it very interesting. The guides knowledge was very extensive. A thoroughly enjoyable visit. Thank You to all concerned in this project.
  • A fantastic model village/train set, top quality professional model making for those interested with supporting displays on everything from the trains to the methods used to make the grass! We spent a couple of hours there, but some were there just to see the trains. Ask one of the guides if you can see the night scene (the villages light up, it's quite magical!). Tiny car park so don't expect to be able to park there.
  • Interestingly different family day out I took my nephews and they loved it, It is actually rather good even for those of us who have no interest in trains, The landscape is almost like miniature time travel and has to be seen to be believed, pretty good value for money compared to comparable things i have taken family to. I would definitely recommend a visit, and would happily go again.
  • We spent a very pleasant 1.5 hours to have a look around the the three different galleries showing model villages and railways from around the 1920s/1930s. The volunteers were very helpful, giving us a brief tour of what was going on and what buildings and infrastructure we could see. They even turned the lights off to give us a nighttime view and the detail in all of the models were so impressive. Overall, it was definitely worth a visit while in Oxfordshire but we thought the tea room, by the gift shop, could be improved.
  • A great place to visit. Excellent models and staff are very heloful too.
