Owner description: Step inside the story of our social, retail and industrial heritage and imagine what life would have been like during the Victorian era and the 1930s as you explore the life size streets, buildings, shops and vehicles, all under one roof. Be inspired by wonderful collections from vehicles, toys, domestic appliances and lots more! See how our homes developed through decades from 1930 - 1970s with our authentic room-sets. Experience our 1940s sweet shop when you purchase an old penny for £1 to buy your 2oz ration of sweets in the sweet shop. Have fun in our vintage penny arcade. Dress up in Victorian costumes. Under 5s can also enjoy our play post office. Experience our working Edwardian pub where you can enjoy a pint and a sandwich. Events such as LEGO and Father Christmas Grotto at selected times of the year.

Interesting museum and a bargain day out as you pay one then get a years entry. We always visit when there is a different event on and because it’s so large, never feels too busy. Restaurant does look expensive so we take a picnic. My children love the sweet shop £1 for a rations worth of sweets and the old arcade

Brought back many memories of past years. A lot of the displays had items that made you comment 'whaaa do you remember those'. A little on the expensive side, after we paid for 2 concessions 1 adult and one child we could have got a family ticket and saved seven pounds. Recommend pre booking.

Great fun and really well done, not sure regards other peoples negative comments regards this? The weekend we went had Lego as an additional fun which made the day for the kids brilliant. Without he Lego it may have been a bit too adult themed. The pub in the middles of the old village was spot on.
