I think this is officially called The Museum of Nottingham Life, but it's located on Brewhouse Yard, hence the confusion - on our visit Google Maps seemed to think it was two different museums! Anyway, it's very well worth a visit. There's so much to...More

Thoroughly interesting and enjoyable museum, actually would rate this higher than the castle. Well laid out and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it. Charming little museum depicting Nottingham life, particularly liked the little chemist shop.

Loved this museum, there's something here to interest everyone and staff are very helpful.Wish it was open more often. Feel the fee of £2.50 is too low. Suggest £5.

After booking tickets for the castle it was a little frustrating to find out as soon as you get in that it isn't a castle anymore. On our way out someone told us we could use our tickets to visit Brewhouse. It was the best...More

Our Justice Museum ticket took us in here the following day where friendly engaged staff talked us through exhibits when we asked, and didn't press themselves on us when we didn't: perfect. Some had personal experience of the early C20 kitchen on display. Lovely little...More

The houses and caves are themselves a good visit but the volunteers made the exhibits alive. The shop was a super glimpse into pre supermarket days. The children's toys through the ages on first floor brought back many memories. The attic floor has shop Windows...More

Our visit was an "add on" with the visit to the Castle. It really should be the main attraction. Far more interesting and the staff are brilliant. After being disappointed at the Castle, this made our day. Can you remember, I had one of those,...More

I have rated it "poor" only because it only opens at weekends and we were there mid-week. Surely in the summer months this museum should be open?
