Some may call it tacky, some may call it naff but I call it both. Its actually quite good in a cack way but well worth the money. I'd definitely go again.

We decided to go inside as we visited Matlock on a very cold day and this place is really good value for money! Only £3.50 to go inside and we walked around for almost an hour.

Myself and 2 friends visited this museum having been recommended by a friend. We had to park in the station car park and walk to find it along the main parade.For £3.30 entrance we were treated to a walk through journey of wonderful aquariums with some beautiful fish of all sizes. Following on a room had a pool full of carp but then older photographs actually told us the room was the original bath house. The highlight for us was the magnificent exhibition of holograms seen from varying angles just fantastic. So worth a visit, dont miss it! There are quite a few steps so may not be suitable for someone who would find steps difficult,

Thank Susan W
