Can you imagine your family living in a space measuring six feet by eight feet? Or do you wonder what domestic life was like in the 19th century? Find out for yourself at The Boat Museum, Ellesmere Port. Here you can hop aboard many of the boats in the world’s largest collection of historic inland waterways craft and step back in time from 1840 through to 1950 in the period cottages at Porters Row. Add to this exhibitions of social and industrial canal history, a working forge, halls of powerful, rattling machinery, displays of traditional waterways art, and boat trips along the Shropshire Union Canal and you a set for a full and entertaining day out. Special events throughout the year and discounts for groups of 10 or more. New exhibitions May 2005.
