AAC Museum at Middle Wallop, December 2017

A last trip out for 2017 to take a look at the AAC Museum at Middle Wallop. It had been a few years since my last visit, and I'd forgotten how cramped and dark it was in places. Also, the high windows in some places made for strong back-lighting to some of the suspended exhibits. Overall an enjoyable visit with some excellently preserved exhibits.

Nice shots of interesting machines in a crowded facility. I must get there again, not having visited for about 20 years!

Great shots there; I always struggle to get decent pics when I visit (MW is quite close to me so is something of a "regular" haunt), but then I do only use an oversized point and shoot!

Not sure if they're still doing it, but when I visited with the family in tow back in the summer, for the price of the family ticket you essentially got a 1 year pass for the museum. Well worth it in my opinion!
I've brought you a gift; I'll give you a hint, it's in my diaper, and it's not a toaster!
