Worth the visit just to see the enormous water pump, its like being in 'Honey, I shrunk the kids'

The Museum of Power is a little known gem. For those with an interest in anything mechanical you will love this place. The steam driven water pump is enormous (three stories high) so standing next to it makes you feel like you have been shrunk in size. It is a great way to see how an engine works as it... More

This is a great place to bring out your inner Engineer. Plenty of things for smaller people to look at, buttons to press and stuff to learn without realising it. A great tour by the knowledgeable Graham into the underground depths of the great pumping machinery still in place. This is in working order and operates on certain days so... More

Probably under used, but most interesting if you like history, engineering and a pleasant rural environment plus a nice cafe!

A very interesting museum to spend a few hours in. Probably more suited to men but I still found plenty to interest me. The model fairy village is a must for children of all ages.

Not a huge museum but full of interesting mechanical devices and examples of engineering from 100 years back Good value and children may be suprised to see what is there. Also model village and ride on railway Even better value when cars shows are on in adjacent field as included in with the admission price.

I visit this museum when they have a special event on. Classic cars, camper vans, or whatever. This really makes the visit worthwhile. However, the museum without an event is still a nice place to visit, it has cars, engines, and lots of machinery on show, plus a model village, and a few grounds to walk round. It even has... More
