Lots to do for all the family and great value for money. Take a picnic as there is no cafe just vending machines but loads of places to sit and eat. Our 7 year old LOVED it (and daddy did too). Try to...
Kids loved it, had a fantastic time! We will come back soon now we have the passport to all the museums.
Amazing location - rather than looking through a glass case you get to live and breathe the Victorian town. The atmosphere is amazing..
Brilliant atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and excellent value for money! Definitely going again, kept the kids entertained all day with their old money to spend. Recommended for a family visit
We spent a lovely day at the Victorian Town today. We purchased an annual pass so we can revisit as many times as we like for a whole year plus 9 other museums in the area. Great value.
