“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

This really is a "living museum." It's grown a bit more each time we go. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic. If you can get yourself into the right mood, you'll see a lot, learn a bit and enjoy everything. Great for all ages.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I feared that this might be rather twee, but that could not have been further from the truth. Very interesting, informative and commendably authentic.

“overpriced!”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Hugely expensive, for a family... Have to pay extra for rides that should be inclusive - Legoland is cheaper all-in-all! Great Victorian shops, but when one family/party is inside there's no room for you to go in, so either wait for ages or move on. Some elements were not open (Feb Half Term) but prices the same and no signs of closures at reception.

“Great day out for all ages”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Fabulous day out for all ages although one hilly bit to walk up/ down. Very educational in a fun way. See inside the old doctors surgery, bakers, candle makers, printers and loads more. You can treat yourself to fish and chips or a pasty for lunch. If you visit in October there is a wonderful candle lit halloween evening when every one dresses up, and a great bonfire and firework event too. For these events a park and ride is provided from Telford Centre. Well worth a visit to see the way we used to live.
