Rooms set out like Victorian Era rooms/ Shops etc and very educational. Also goes through some caves. Victorian school room next door and son tried his hand at some Maths and Writing on... More

Organised for a group of 14 prior to opening hours. Introductory talk by custodian on duty. Took over an hour for seniors to get round all exhibits. Lots of trips down Memory Lanes. Imagine this is a useful resource for school teachers. Do check opening hours..Toilets on site key with custodian.

Just loved the place -- so much to see -- the old building itself is a gen from the past. Maybe necessary to phone to check that it is open during your anticipated visiting time

We wasted a Sunday travelling to Nottingham to visit the museum with our young grandson only to find it closed. We checked on the website prior to our trip and it said it was open. There were no notices on the website or at the museum to say it was closed. We had to enquire at the castle. It had... More

At £2.50 it is a bargain! We arrived a few minutes before it opened and sat talking to the wonderful volunteers that were working in the garden and the museum. One went and made us a cup of coffee while we waited. The exhibits and the building are interesting and give a view of local life though various times in... More

Went here to find it closed. Only open at weekends and on bank holidays. However it is next door to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, so we visited there instead.
