  • 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
