Spent a morning at Timbertown. The numerous “museum” buildings are interesting without being deeply engaging. The highlights are the bullocks (oxen) demonstrations and the steam train. Was lucky enough to get to join driver in locomotive - my inner five year old was in heaven

This tourist attraction has alot of potential. However, the last 2 times I have been here have been a disappointment. It is not worth the price you pay to get in. The houses in side the park have seen better days and you can tell...More
