I live near to the museum and have visited it frequently, becoming friends with the owner, Stella Mitchell. What I would say is rather than a 'typical' museum as such, I regard it more of a personal collection that is now open to the public. I say this because this museum is the result of a lifetimes work from Stella... More

Well this venue has had mixed reviews, but this reviewer found it more the former. Now at a certain age, there was plenty to relate to and remember nostalgically together with a group of similar people. No wonder some people found the lady owner frosty. We visited back in the winter months and it was absolutely freezing in there. I... More

I have been to this Museum quite a few times over the years and there are always more things that you notice,there are even lots of displays on the ceilings. I am seventy years old and the contents bring back a lot of memories for me of things that I have owned or seen in the past. I recently took... More

What would happen if you crossed a junk shop, with someone who keeps everything and sorts it all into a kind of order ? You get the Land of Lost Content. It really is a a big heap of stuff sorted (kind of) across 3 floors of pure delight. It will get you talking and remembering. It will intrigue and... More

A treasure trove of every day ephemera - so much to see and discuss as we went around. Will definitely be returning with aged parents (stairlifts and plenty of chairs around) and had a lovely cup of tea and slice of cake in the quirky self-service cafe with honesty box. Highly recommend.

I have visited a fair few museums of various themes and collections but I have to say, this was by far the most detailed, impressive, interesting and genuinely relatable. Don't be fooled by it's humble extiror. The moment you enter you are overwhelmed by just how much you can see purely upon arrival. We were greeted by Stella, owner and... More

I have been meaning to visit this museum for a long time (in fact, I had kept a leaflet of the museum since 2006 as a reminder to go when I was in the area) and I was not disappointed! This is a quirky, proud, jam-packed, rammed-full, musty, astonishing, atmospheric, bewildering collection of artefacts from around the UK over the... More

This is a really wonderful museum, although I started to feel quite old as I walked around, seeing everyday items from my younger days now a museum exhibits. The exhibits started from the Victorian era to about the 1980's and included clothing, toys and household objects which demonstrated how we lived before technology brought everything at the touch of a...

A very strange place. Odd but fascinating. Creepy in places and not for people who feel uneasy in confined places. It's one of those places you never stop talking about.

What an absolute gem of a find. This place is awesome, jammed packed full of stuff from the past that we'd forgotten about but was very happy to remember and see again. Filled from floor to ceiling with goodies from a bygone era. We spent over 3 hours in there just reminiscing about all the wonders we were seeing and... More
