Our top ten reasons to visit
With such a lot to experience, it's difficult to pick our top 10, but here goes:
The Costumed Characters.
Meet our costumed characters and they’ll explain what it was like to live and work in one of the world’s most heavily industrialised landscapes.
Our Shops & Houses.
Explore original period shops and houses of one of the most extraordinary open-air museums in the UK
See sparks fly as our chain maker forges a link, witness the glow of our forges, smell the steam of our engines and hear the banging of hot metal.
Our Underground Mine.
Descend on foot ‘into the thick’ of our underground drift mine and face the harsh reality of a coal miner’s life in the mid 19th century.
St. James's School.
Test your times tables in a 1912 school lesson.
Have a ride on the fun fair, test your skill on the 'hook a duck' and hit the right spot with a throw on the coconut shy.
We reckon our fish & chips are simply the best!
Try our famous traditionally 1930s cooked fish and chips.
