The highlight of the day was the entertainer, who cleverly kept both the children and adults amused in his regular half hourly show in a tent in the grounds.
There is lots to do both inside and outside the museum, which is conveniently situated next to the railway station. Usually I travel there by train, but this time we took the stunning 45minute drive over the Pennine moors on the M62. Leave at junction 24 and it is signed to Halifax.
The sand play, in-between the showers.
The most popular part of the museum is the garage, the M&;S shop and the Bank. True to gender stereotype the girls tend to play in the shop and the boys in the garage. Everybody love sending money through a vacuum tube to different parts of the museum, and everybody loves to play post office. Delivering letters and parcels to all the addresses.
This girl would not take off her postpersons uniform. We saw her all over the place.
There is even a hole in the ground which is always popular for some reason.
Although everybody wants to sit in the Lorry .
The museum is an educational trust and there are interactive sections for the body and global conservation
Making the lights dance!
The day was rounded off by some rugby coaching for the boys, whilst mum and grandma sat and rested!
