  • We loved seeing the traction engine, steam roller and showman's engine. There are lots of interesting things to see and read too, giving insight about the engines and the works that made them, and some educational and fun exhibits you can play with (belts and pulleys, pistons). Everyone's very friendly and there's even a nice cafe. And it's free! But it's well with making a donation...

  • Love this place, small but great.
  • The volunteer staff were very helpful, and answered all my questions.
