So much to see and talk about! Super collection of memorabilia, vintage tvs and radios. Brilliant afternoon. Lovely family run museum with the added bonus of rather scummy cakes.

The museum is an excellent collection of TV memorabilia which will bring back many memories for some. My two children didn't know most of the programmes but still enjoyed themselves immensely. The Doctor Who life size figures were especially a hit for my 8 year...More
