Very interesting place, with a wide variety of halls, ranging from textiles to steam-powered machinery, with lots of other things between. The hands-on section is great if you want some fun!

Not a very quiet place, with a reasonable chance of bumping into people you know, so not necessarily the best place if you want a discreet outing.

Also a great family day out, and being free is even better!
