Wimborne Minster Model Town: Re-creating the historic market town of Wimborne Minster exactly as it was during the 1950s, you can get really close up and even touch the buildings, checking out every minute detail of over 100 shop window displays. Peer into the Butchers, the Ironmongers, the Bakery and the Fishmongers, not forgetting the stunning interior of the Minster Church. As you begin to explore in more detail, your mind will turn to wondering just how the group of skilled and dedicated model makers achieved such amazing life like results working as they did over five decades ago in a rural England still recovering from the war years. Also there is a putting lawn while you are excitedly adding up the scores on the official Scorecard provided, the children have found the next attraction the most fantastic working Model Railway layout which also includes working model Trams.
