Totally agree with vdubman (24/2/12). The LEGO Mania event is uttter pants. We went last Saturday (25th Feb) and queued for 30 minutes to get in. Woefully poor display/activities and completely lacking in imagination. You literally could do better setting something up at home in...More

We have received a small number of similar comments about LEGO Mania to the one posted here. We are are sorry that, on the weekend of the 25/26th February, the event didn't live up to some visitors expectations. We didn't fully anticipate quite how popular...More

We visited milestones today solely because of the Lego mania exhibition. This was advertised everywhere round and about, and the web site made it sound amazing. Frankly, it isn't. I agree wholeheartedly with vdubbman. Such a disappointment. After queuing for half an hour with two...More

Wonderful day out for adults and children; it really takes you down memory lane and is a great learning experience for children to see how people lived in previous generations. The meal facilities are also excellent, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced food and drinks.

A good morning or afternoon out. But expensive for the time you can spend there. It is really the sort of place you will only go to once unless there is a special event. Good fun for a short period of time.
