The museum is open, but not in steam

Easter to October - Every Sunday, 2.00-5.00pm
November to Easter - First Sunday in the month, 2.00-5.00pm
On these open days the whole of the museum is open and some of the non-steam exhibits can be running.

Please note that the museum's 1923 boiler which we use to raise steam to run the engines is out of service for the foreseeable future because is needs a major overhaul but that we are fundraising to carry out this work
