  • Had a fabulous morning here with 5 year old and 7 year old, and a baby in tow. So much to see and do, we didn't have time to do everything. The secret garden story was fabulous and the woman who led i...  more »
  • When you first arrive you're not 100% where to go until you see a hand-made sign hanging on what looks like someone's back door, directing you to the cafe. I immediately got a bad feeling. You have to...  more »
  • Spent a good 4 hours here with my 2 sons age 10 & 11. Wasn't sure what to expect & as my sons raced through the 1st few rooms wondered if my entrance fee was a waste of money! But the movie making and...  more »

  • Lovely museum, ideal for children (but not pushchair friendly). Feels a bit low budget in places, but this is reflected in the ticket price. The dressing up room is a lot of fun. Ideal to visit for a couple of hours.
  • A great place for children's parties and they hold all sorts of events too. The cafe also serves great cakes. Only issue is parking can't really be found nearby.
  • Haven’t got the chance to visit it, just took a quick look from outside, it looks good
  • PROS: - two floors of different stories, - nice shop with possible refreshments, - friendly staff, - my favourite part was the big bed, - very fair entrance price, - great if you have kids. CONS: - not exactly a museum, I'd rather call it a story house, - in my opinion kids have to be a certain age, otherwise it's a bit pointless (especially if they don't know any of the stories mentioned - they will probably enjoy the big bed and storytelling though), - could use a bit of fixing in certain places.
  • The staff in the cafe are unbelievably rude and do not seem to understand the concept of common courtesy and being tactful towards customers. Everything is overpriced and I'm not going to pay to be insulted whilst trying to feed my child.
