Really child friendly, well maintained exposition, entertaining and insightful demonstrations, many interactive features... This museum is well worth the visit. The only reason I am not rating it with five stars is because I didn't got to see the whole place and some of the interactive "stands" could use some fixes here and there - just small details honestly. My sister and I visited it by chance since it wasn't in our plans, and we could not have felt more grateful after spending a whole morning there. Lots to see, lots to learn!
This is a great museum, especially for younger people. It would make for a fun day out for a family. The museum usually takes around 3/4 hours to get around depending how long you spend in each area and if you wait for any shows or performances. You can ride on a steam train, learn about cotton production and see various old trains, aeroplanes and other vehicles from the past. The most appealing part of this museum is the interactive floor that makes this museum especially fun for children. The museum also offers a cafe and gift shop with gifts for children as well as adults.
Wonderful museum full of local history, examples of engines, trains, cars and planes. Has a floor of hands on experiments which even our 4 year old understood and got involved with. They had a few other exhibitions (some paid) which I would have liked to see if we had time. Definitely coming back 🙂
They've done a lot to improve this for children, and now there are more picnic areas for children, including in the building with the aeroplanes. The interactive area on the top floor was great for my boys (who are 1 and 3), and there is a little soft play space as well. The only thing I don't like about the museum in general is the gauntlet you now have to run to get in where they pressure you for donations, but I suppose I can understand that and it is definitely worth bunging them a few quid. The steam trains weren't running on the day we went, but definitely review the cost of this before you do it as I think it has increased substantially.
We visited for the Power UP! gaming event and didn't have much time to look at the rest of the museum, but what we did see looked brilliant. It's well laid out, with some great exhibits and super friendly staff. We'll definitely be back for longer soon!
