Find out about the architects who designed the houses, principal buildings and landscapes. Experience what it was like to live and work here during the village's heyday. Within the museum you will get an insight into different characters who lived and worked in the village during its early years.
  
For those wanting to explore the village, the museum offers a variety of tour options.

The museum is filled with a mix of special exhibitions, evolving displays, interactive touch screens and film footage from past into present day; in addition to a recently restored Edwardian restored worker’s cottage.
 
Refreshments are available from a contemporary tea room located above the museum, open daily, the tea room caters for individuals and small groups (large groups must pre-book) serving a delicious selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, light lunches, award-winning cakes.
