Under 5s can also enjoy our play post office. Experience our working Edwardian pub where you can enjoy a pint and a sandwich.

A compact but well set out museum full of hidden nooks & crannies all set out in a realistic town/street setting. Staff & volunteers are clearly passionate about work. Cafe is pleasant. (Added bonus for me & my son, as Coeliac's, they were able to...More

Visited here and the 4 of us rather enjoyed it. Very interesting. Wouldve rated 5 stars but i think having lego models throughout of Greek mythical beasts completely clashed with the displays. While looking at early 20th century vehicles, seeing a 6 foot lego Cyclops...More

I had never heard of this museum before but it was great. I loved the displays of the old vehicles, furniture and fittings, particularly the old buses and trucks. Kids loved the Lego mythical creature hunt, which the museum had invested a lot of effort...More

We went to see Victorian/1950s history and were entranced by the unexpected Mythical Beasts Lego exhibition - it was COOL apparently! (Grandson’s comment). Collecting clues to ‘free the beasts’ took our attention and kept a 9 and 6 year old employed for 3 hours! Plus,...More

Rather frustrating visit today. Bought a family ticket online, arrived and expected it to be busy. Waited 25mins in the "fast track" queue (only one cashier on despite it being busy wet half term day. The "buy on the day ticket queue" whizzed past us!)....More

Amazing place. It’s clear a lot of love and attention has gone into this living museum. If you go at the correct hours you can get a proper pint of ale in the vintage pub. The toys and electrical products through the ages are amazing....More

Depends on the three year old of course, and what they like - but as the others have said, the penny arcade will definitely keep them busy and there is access to a couple of the vehicles that they can get into and sit in... More

It varies on which day you go. We went in a Friday and paid £25.50 for two seniors and a 5 year old. It's not cheap! But it's well done
