Nostalgic trip down memory lane for both kids and adults. Grandson particularly liked the sections on telephone systems throughout the years as well as the Music room where we were given an informative talk on music boxes through to vynal records. Can get hands on with the telephone equipment. Nice outside areas and cafe serving cakes and drinks.
What a surprise! I had no idea the museum existed. Spent 2 hours here and still didn't cover everything. Went with my 15 yr old son and my parents. We all loved it. Definitely coming back to finish off my tour and my ticket is valid for a year....So I can. I'm not saying any more....spoilers 😁
