  • Visited her last year and it was a great place to visit. Such a shame it's closed. I hope someone manages to reopen it again in the future.  more »
  • It's really sad to hear that this place has closed. I have a lot of child hood memories associated with it. The exhibits were very interesting and I never got tired of them no matter how many times I ...  more »

  • Free to enter.. Lovely local museum with some great seasonal additional installations. Come quick though as liable to not be around for long as council cuts hit, which will be a massive lose to Preston.
  • We went today just pass a couple of hours and spent over 4 here today! Fantastic museum with really friendly, helpful staff. Visited the cafe first thing for coffee and then stayed for a great lunch - they don't do full cooked meals but you can get toasted sandwiches, soup etc. and all reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, but please donate in order that this place can stay open.
  • Lovely little cafe, friendly staff, lots to see. Please don't close it down! We took four of our five children and they absolutely loved it. They can get into a typical air raid shelter which folk would have had in their garden, feel the size of the trenches, see how it feels to sit in a tank's driving seat, and much much more!
  • Lovely little museum. There are lots of activities for the kids. There are quite a lot of stairs, so it might be tricky for those with mobility difficulties and it means you need to watch toddlers. The wartime trenches display can be a bit overwhelming for younger children.
  • Absolutely brilliant museum ,my kids love it and will be devastated if it closed .why spend millions on doing it up to close it?? Another great idea by the council
