We were in a rush so did not take the time to read and watch everything. Inexpensive but not for kids. They will get bored. Should only take about an hour to see everything as it is quite small.

We visited expecting to see villagers demonstrating their crafts in an historical environment. However the cottages, whilst informative, appeared to be full of historical equipment. They did not give a representative view of cottage life.
