The exhibits and museums here are excellent. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a must if you are interested in social history and the industrial revolution. Can't recommend highly enough.

The Victorian village was fantastic . We spent most of the day here. From authentic shops to school lessons in the Victorian School with the strict teacher. Change your money at the authentic bank for old coins and watch demonstrations of industry in Victorian times...More
