Recommended by Jolice McGee, Manchester
“'A good little museum, Upstairs is a mock up of an old time street Shops,Pub,School etc,etc with dressing up and hands on experience for the kids. Downstairs is given over to local industry history and the effect of the canal,The best part for kids is a mock up of a narrow boat with computer simulation screen that allows the kids (and adults) to have go at steering the boat (Good fun but harder than it looks).'”
