Amazing museum. Great interactive experience, especially changing money in the bank and using it to purchase things like bread from the baker. The people in character were very friendly and informative. I particularly liked the houses (scary seeing items you can actually remember seeing in your childhood). My Husband is a plumber and loved the workshops and machinery. We spent over 4 hours here but could easily have stayed longer. Visited with my Husband and 22 year old Daughter.

We bought the carnivore combo experience and it was amazing. The group was only small (4 people) and the keeper was very nice knowledgeable and able to read when people have had enough of holding the snake! We had a great time and after the experience we walked around the farm and fed all the animals. They have a wide variety of animals which all look well cared for and all seem to be happy. I am not one for zoo's as I don't think animals should be kept in cages but when you talk to the staff.

It's interesting for those who like history. They also have a workshop in which you can make a tile of your own. That is an experience in itself and makes you realise the skills involved for those who worked and hand painted tiles in the past. Worth a visit to say you have done something different and appreciate tiles that were made in the past. If you just want to go and make a tile you do not have to go round the museum you can just go on specific days they do workshops.
