We love this place so much! The adventures that you can have walking back in time through the street in "olden days" Britain or exploring the animals of the forest.

We especially like the ever changing lower floor exhibits that bring different things to life. It is great to see the Staffordshire board on view with interactive videos and historical action to see.
Fantastic place to visit so much to see. Plenty of interactive things for children to get involved with. Also has small cafe for a rest and drink before you explore more! Highly recommended.
