Brian gave us a great tour of this museum. The film from the 1940s was interesting. IF you are near Southport I would definitely recommend going to this attraction.

I thought the museum was really interesting, despite not being an enthusiast. The collection is extensive and varied and provides a glance at how life has changed. I especially liked the children’s mowers (not toys) but really so children could cut the grass and all...More
