I found the The Needle Museum quite interesting but the situation was rescued by the museum being in Redditch.
However, a word of warning: the cafe sells Cornetto ice creams, which every dull man knows is dangerously bordering on the exciting. I took a bottle of water with me.
Thank you so much for this news. We went to their web site and are really interested . . . we looking forward to traveling to Redditch . . . to Needle Mill Lane . . . to spend a lot of time at what appears to be a truly fascinating museum.
As for the Cornetto ice cream, there might be no need to be worried. We went to the ice cream company’s web site (http://www.unilever.co.uk/ourbrands/foods/Cornetto.asp). We see that they have vanilla. Let’s hope that, among the flavors served at this museum, they include vanilla.
