The museum is a living museum that probes the past, present and future. Many exhibits are climb aboard, hands on and even ride on! The exhibits are updated every year during the closed season, providing a wide range of new and exciting things to see each year.
Why not make a day of it? Visit the museum and stop off at the Travellers Rest Tea Room for a cup of tea or coffee and a bite to eat. We can accommodate school trips and groups. Discounts for groups of 12 or more are available.
We now offer Campervans that arrive before museum closing times the opportunity to book in for their visit the following day and then be allowed to camp inside the secure museum grounds overnight free of charge. The museum currently has no camping facilities so you will have to be fully self-contained, but it will be quiet, secure and close to local shops and eateries if required. The site will not be available for booking on event weekends.
Throughout the year the museum has an extensive outdoor events programme, with such events taking place as Family Fun Days and How Many Left?
