A great venue - perfect for a history topic on toys. (September 2020 - Primary)




(February 2020 - Primary)




The venue was great and the children really enjoyed exploring the different vehicles. The children loved using the clue cards to discover facts about different vehicles. (April 2019 - Primary)




Very well organised, staff very helpful and children had a great time exploring and learning during the workshops. (March 2019 - Primary)




The museum is well organised for school trips with good facilities. The people we thought would be leading the sessions only organised the timings and adult helpers had to lead the activities. If we had known this beforehand we would have tried to find a way of better preparing them. (March 2019 - Primary)




An excellent visit which enhanced the children's knowledge of the 1930s wartime era. (March 2019 - Primary)




An excellent venue well set up to support children's learning (January 2019 - Primary)




(November 2018 - Primary)




The children were able to gain an insight into many elements about the past. They could participate in games and were very keen to share and participate in these once we returned to school. The staff were very welcoming and ensured that children made the most out of their sessions. (October 2018 - Primary)
