Thanks JanP
This is the message we are always trying to get across, we are bigger than we look and allow plenty of time to see everything,, especially on Sundays with the demos.

Excellent place to visit there is so much history there, it take you back to your good old days. You need at least 2 hours it took us about 3 hours. We went on a Sunday and the volunteers show you how things were done way back when, and it just goes to show you can still learn things today about the early days.

Had a great day walking down memory lane exploring all the old relics of yesteryear. Particularly liked the displays being gathered on the old fire engines and memorabillia

Like everyone else has said don't be put off by the small street entrance. This place is larger than it looks. There is a great collection of vehicles, exhibits and buildings of how life used to be. Great friendly staff. Only $10 entry for adults. Recommend this place if you have a couple of hours spare
