All the sculptures have gone and it’s now a private dwelling. I had to sit in their garden and stare at the empty plinths for 50 minutes until the police arrived and I had some entertainment. All I have is memories.

I'm a local resident and this place has been closed for good and the place has been sold off to a private buyer for private use no longer a museum

This museum displays all aspects of life at the time of the Industrial Revolution, shops, machinery, coal mining, steam engines, etc. There is so much to see and do that a full day should be dedicated to the visit in order to give it justice....More

A breath of fresh air when it comes to displaying outdoor large sculptures. A lovely place to spend some time in quiet contemplation.

As this is a comparatively small museum, there may be a temptation to give it a miss. If you do, you'll miss admiring some unique artistry. The creative process involved in some of these is intricate and exacting. But don't take my word for it!

This pile of scrap in a field has no artistic merit and is not worth the time you are spending reading this review. Call me old and cynical, and I suppose some people will love it, but no me.
