  • Well worth a visit. A look back in time or maybe in to the future, Victorian values and all of that. It would seem that they are expanding also to make the attraction even greater which is always good...  more »

  • Buy the three ticket option but the court house although nice doesn't take five minutes. The police/jail is the most interesting of the three and gets five stars. The workhouse is good and worth the v...  more »

  • i love it. it tell you the whole story about the past .
  • A superb place to visit, a real step back in time. Also they are planning on expanding the facility which will make it even more interesting.
  • Brilliant. Staff even kept my 4 year olds attention
  • With a long stay car park only 2 minuets away its worth a visit. Plenty to see including mock rooms and dress up clothes to try on for children. You can learn a lot and with the helpful reception staff you cant go wrong. You can visit the other 2 museums - Police/Jail house and Courtroom for one price. Don't forget to walk round the garden ! it grows what they used to while the workhouse was open.
  • Me and my wife had a great day at the museum We plan on going again well worth the money
