    Best museum ever. You won't regret spending a whole day here. Worth getting an annual pass and use it as an entry ticket as many times as you want.

    Plenty to entertain the whole family for the whole day. All the buildings were taken brick by brick from towns in the region. Have a beer in the Sun Inn.

    Check out the back of the sweet shop for demonstrations of how the sweets were made and a free taste!

    Quite simply, this is the best museum I've ever been to. And the chip shop does unbelievably good chips!

    The chip shop has a wait of at least half an hour, but they are worth it!

    Bring your own food and drink because it costs an arm and a leg to buy it there.
