This was an amazing day which was far beyond any other experience we tried during our one week in Oswestry. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially if you have a family. Definitely 5*.

Set in a small shed alongside the old railway, this was a small but densely packed little museum with a lot of information and many artefacts relating to the Cambrian Railway and to railway history in general. Though at times it looked a little shabby...More
