Quite expensive if taking the family for what it is but it is a good way to spend an hr or two. Nice cafe overlooking the canal. Good if you are interested in the industrial revolution

From the moment you arrive you are met by the exceptionally friendly staff. The history exhibits are really interesting and the glass displays are unique. The icing on the cake was the glass blowing demonstration which blew me away.

Great place to visit, lots of things to do for kids and lots of history. The cafe also a hidden gem. Cheap to enter and free parking, the tunnels are very old and you can imagine the people working there all those years ago.
