Was very impressed. Staff are wonderful and there is a kids corner that the little can play. Steer fire engine, dress up, draw, puzzles, and computer for the older kids. Lots of history and ample engines from all decades. It was very good would recommend

It was a fun family orientated museum But don't expect to spend much more than an hour or so there. We had a three year old with us and he really enjoyed it. As did his grandparents.

This is a really great learning centre and exhibit. It has everything from early Japanese manual pumpers to modern equipment (well relatively modern). Staff are very friendly particularly in the very well equipped gift shop :)
