We came here back in July and it was an excellent day out! Staff were so friendly and helpful.
Suited all ages, even my 1year old was fascinated by everything!
So gutted it has closed we would have came again and again!

love this place
we went on the last day but it was still as good as it had ever been
theres lots of interative bits like lifting a car, making fire and other great stuff like that. theres other stuff like cars, fashion and mining too.
outside theres a big play area with a wet water bit which is very fun and some more interative bit as well as a slide and swings.
also theres mining tour and a train too.
staff are always freendly too
it is sad to see something so great go but it had a good run

Now closed through ashby de la zouch county and district councillors running down coalville. Purely a political move by councillors not wanting a successful museum that was not situated in Ashby de la Zouch. Ashby museum to close? Don't think so

We've visited this museum over 10 times since it first opened.

It has many unique and interesting exhibits which are educational for younger children.

A shame it's now closing but what was really needed was additional funding to modernise it.

We visited Snibston because we heard at the last minute that it was being closed down by the County Council to save money and wanted to see it before it was too late. What an excellent discovery centre and museum. Being particulay interested in transport we really liked the industrial side, but the whole place is marvellous. The county council should give this place over to enthusiasts to run...
