Hadn't been to Wardown for years. Loved the new interactive displays, being born in Luton it was a walk down memory lane. Great restoration and lovely lunch too. Will have to bring the Grandkids.

This local museum is based in a 19th century mansion.So the house devotes a large part to recreating life in the house at that time including a digital billiard table.The hat industry is displayed extensively.Displays on local history and the local regiment complete extensive displays.

I hadn't visited the museum for quite a while so I thought I'd pop in with the grandkids. They absolutely loved it and I must admit, the sights, sounds and smells took me right back to when I went as a kid.

We visited one sunny Sunday whilst the son was at football. It was well laid out and really interesting. The guide was welcoming and knowledgeable. I'll definitely be back... this time to try the cafeteria which looked lovely
