Very interesting and friendly

A very enjoyable half day out, especially if you are into pumps and boilers and stuff.
The Museum is well laid out, with free parking. The men working in the Museum are obvious 'steamheads' and are always happy to talk to you about the exhibits. Good outside area for children (the waterpark), with interesting activities for them to interact with.

The cafeteria offer is very limited, but the seating area inside is quite extensive and they are happy for you to take your own picnic in and eat it inside; there are also outside picnic benches. The staff are all very friendly.
