Saw the Fun Museum listed but thinking it might be just for kids i was wrong, this fascinating museum has lots to see and do lots of history and many things that bring back memories of my childhood spent a lot of the day there,...More

Tired, dusty and junky....but, once you get past this, wonderful display of war memorabilia, and a must for train enthusiasts. Quite expensive compared with other attractions.

No longer open - Sadly Owners have decided to retire and collection has been sold off, which is a disappointment - looked like it would have been a great fun walk thru memory lane!

Waste of time and money. Collection of old dusty railway and war memorabilia which is just put into an old shed. Disorganised place run by 'weirdos'. Scary...... was wondering if we were 'never to be seen again'

This is not for serious museum visitors. A wide range of interesting military and rail items housed in a rustic (and thus dusty) setting. Manned by volunteers, many of the items displayed have been donated by veterans.

There is so much here to see, lots of old signs, military items, trains, tractors, cars and everything in between. Entry fee was a little expensive.

What a collection!!! An amazing amount of old stuff... very quirky and set out quite randomly but I smiled the whole way around and founds loads of interesting bits and pieces. It was quite expensive to get in, but it was a really enjoyable hour...More
