Brilliant museum. Well laid out and comprehensive displays all accompanied by a video. Lots of interactive games for the children and as GWR enthusiasts we were in heaven. I particularly liked the display of door handles and to be able to see under the steam engine was a real treat for our teenage engineers. Spot on. Will definitely be returning.

We took our two year old Grandson to this museum. Not sure how he would take it. But it was amazing. We were there for two hours, fully amused and entertained. He loved all the buttons and interaction at the museum. We found it difficult to pull him away from the train set!!
