We loved our trip. The museum is run by volunteers who are passionate about restoring and demonsrrating engines and old machinery associated with Sheffields industrial history. A must for budding engineers, both old and young alike.

We had a brilliant and interesting visit, the volunteers who guided us round clearly knew their stuff and had so many stories to share with us that they brought the history of the place to life. A great day out.

This is a fantastic place to spend a Sunday afternoon. Lots to see including lots if working machinery, a great guide to show us round and explain everything, and even a miniature railway to ride on. All for £3 including parking! Just excellent.

Went for an open day when the trains were working. So much history and the people that volunteer were so helpful and clearly enjoyed working there. In a beautiful setting. Would recommend this to anyone as something for everyone and very reasonably priced entrance fee.
