A bit of a different type of Museum, great volunteers engage you in interesting social history. Great, won't take long but worth visiting. Don't forget to leave a donation - they are a charity!!
Is this a first - a review of a closed museum ? After a bit of a hike up the hill, I reached the Museum of Work. A sign on the door read 'closed in December', but the door was not locked so I ventured in. I was able to meander through the exhibits, though some were in darkness, which... 更多
The museum is mostly the contents of an old factory that opened in the 19th century and closed in 1969, seemingly without ever throwing anything out. We were given a good introduction by the person in the ticket office before we spent a very pleasant hour looking round.

Well worth the visit, a hidden gem.. very interesting and informative, excellent for children and adults with a lot to see.... you can dress up in old costumes..great fun.

The staff we met during our... 更多
