A great museum full of interactive displays and a great play area and conservation walk. Snibston shouldn't be closing every time I have visited it has been full of eager and interested visitors.
Really disappointed that Snibston is due to close because of Leicestershire council cuts. Its a great place for a day out with enquiring children, lots of fun and interactive exhibits, prevent to be a coal miner and go on a train ride. As you go in there is a cafe, indoor picnic area and some exhibition space. Best of all... 更多

The fashion... 更多

Our children were kept entertained for almost 5 hours which is no easy task! The staff were very helpful and friendly. Facilities are... 更多
It's a great location with amazing exhibits but it was absolutely empty. The cafe was ok and the shop as expected, but the lack of people was surprising.
