  • The family were doing some shopping in Southport, so I decided to have a look at this as I have a few different mowers. I wasnt disappointed, the place is rammed with all sorts of mowers, and grass cu...  read more »
  • This museum is well worth visiting. There is a very good audio introduction which explains the history of lawnmowers and grass cutters (not the same thing apparently) and tells more about the exhibits...  read more »
  • Lovely little museum, lots of British heritage. Interesting audio guide. £3 entry which is not unreasonable. Filled an hour and we had a nice coffee across the road at the end. 
  • I really did not want to look round the Lawn Mower Museum! I wanted to sit in the car & read the paper - what a yawn,I thought. My husband is re-building an Atco mower so is full of enthusiasm & desperate to talk mowers to someone! So in I went and wow - what a surprise! Not just mowers,all sorts of amazing pieces of machinery;there was Paul O'Gray's lawnmower with pink fluffy bits on it,Prince Charles' ride-on mower given to him on his wedding to Lady Di,an enormous robot mower that could have mown a field! Amazing scythes and a machine that scarified,cut and rolled in one go! Fascinating stuff. Go and see and be amazed and entertained!It is a gem.
  • I am not particlularly a fan of lawnmowers but I read about this museum in a book called Bollocks to AltonTowers and as I was in the area decided to give it a whirl. Also my husband made me go. It's above a lawnmower shop and at the time cost a pound to go in, which turned out to be the bargain of the day. The museum is tiny, crammed to the ceiling and utterly wonderful. It has everything from scythes to Lily Savage's lawnmower but my favourite were the tiny leather shoes the size of espresso cups that were made to cover the hooves of the donkeys who pulled old fashoned lawnmowers. The shoes stopped their hooves from tearing up the turf. Fabulous.
  • The lawnmowers were truly amazing, I really loved how they were in flesh and blood (or should I say metal and oil) would love to go again.
  • Every should visit the lawnmower m, an experience of a lifetime
  • The best lawn mower museum I've been to, ever. No exceptions.
