Gentleman greeted us and proceed to give us a tour and then allowed us to explore ourselves. Very facinated with the rail powered ambulance. KB

Lots of interesting stuff but too much clutter in some of the spaces. Remove some of the items and rotate them on and off display and the effect will be greatly improved.

Well worth the visit but to get the most out of it you need to spend at least 1-2 hours. We enjoyed seeing alot of items that either were used in our homes as children or used by our grandparents.

Great items to look at. Very friendly staff. More labels would be beneficial to know what some of the items are.

We popped in to have a gander and so pleased we did. Some old rural equipment but the 'rail ambulance' has to be unique. The young chap was super enthusiastic about the WW memorabilia which my husband enjoyed. We had heard you could purchase a...More

This wonderful old building is a real gem and houses a collection of fabulous items from previous generations. It is run by volunteers and there is a small entry fee. Well worth a visit.

This was a great historical display of antique trade tools, and domestic tools and gadgets. There was also a wonderful display of antique fashions. The outside display of early horse drawn and early motor vehicles was also very interesting.
