Make sure you book ahead. Not being able to go in ruined our day. There needs to be notification that booking ahead is essential.

For a small fee you can have a go at a few interactive displays. Good for an hours entertainment for kids. Plus there are holiday craft sessions.

I went to see this museum on Friday afternoon only to find a sign saying "Museum Closed"on the door.this looked longer rather than short term.So if you are intending to visit i suggset that you try to contact them first.The rating has nothing to do with my experience of the museum.

Because the museum is operated by the Society of Textile Dyers there is also a very good section given over to the development of... More
