Spent an interesting two hours there could have been longer. The building is crammed with unusual artefacts. Not to good for young children. At £3.50 to get in with free parking also refreshment area and toilets on site. Brown signs from the A4.

Absolutely lovely staff, you can ask any questions. One plane outside, everything else is inside. If the weather is miserable, you'll definitely will have a good time inside. It's fun to see everyday objects how did they look like and worked when they were invented.
