I can assure ANYBODY going there, they will enjoy it. I went a few years ago and had a Fantastic time. It is very reasonable and you do get a good variety of lovely Trams. I am hoping to go again sometime this year, as I do every year, because like trains/railways, so I like Trams. Is it worth a visit? TOO right it is.

If anybody doesn't enjoy it or theirself, then it is entirely their OWN fault.

When I went to Wantirna model rail show the other week there was an HO scale model of the tram museum which had been scratch built by a Mr Brian Smith. I posted a couple of photos under this thread. My father inlaw actually grew up nearby Crich and has been to the museum and testifies that this is an accurate model. I thought it very impressive.

while we are on the subject of trams, i do fancy a go at one of those tramalan kits!
mallard i thought the critch museum web site was pretty poor. it barly tells you what you are going to see there. it basically sais come and see our trams and telly you which ones they have there.
where are the details about the site? where are the trackplans? where are the restoration reports?....
its a long way to go for me but i will try and go this summer i think.

Just a word on the entry fee.
£9 each isn't exactly cheap and, for a family, £24 would be quite an expensive visit.
I would hazard a guess that for many of the nine pounds they take on the gate, quite a few potential visitors didn't accompany the ticket buyer that might have done so if the price were less. Man and wife at as low as a fiver each is still £1 more income than a solo man at £9 and a couple would be more likely to spend extra money on refreshments etc. It's hard to judge how other people spend their money, but I wouldn't want to be paying the asking price for more than myself, especially if the partner was not particularly interested, only going under duress or threat of divorce for poor guy who wants to go anywhere without his chaperonne. They exist!

Thats a fair call about a lot of visitor attractions in the UK. 10 quid seems to be the going rate, and thats a lot of money for what can often be viewed in an hour.
