For young or old this is absolutely fabulous!! Starts with a 5 minute video then you explore the exhibition. Love the figures and the garden. There’s a shop at the end which is well priced. I would highly recommend.

We visited with a 10 month old baby and he loved it. The exhibition is short but well put, with a pretty garden on the outside. The shop was well equipped with good prices. Browns-on-Winderemere is also a very pretty place to walk around after...More
