If you have 30 minutes to kill and bored, museum worth a visit, but reminded me of museums from when I was a kid. There was little sign of development in years. No evidence of new ways of thinking or informing customers. It all seem very tired and under funded.

Was really looking forward to this museum but was very disappointed! In sharp contrast to the staff in the Military Museum, there was only one person who seemed to be remotely enjoying her job. She kept young children enthralled as she talked to them, dressed up as a type of Mary Poppins character! The people at the desk were disinterested... More

My grandson & I visited the Museum on a very wet day in school holidays. I cannot recommend it more than to say it kept an active 9 year old boy occupied & interested for a full two hours! There's something for every ones interest set out in bright airy rooms. The layout is simple, easy to follow & more... More

This was our second visit to the Grosvenor Museum - and we enjoyed it every bit as much as last time. The "Roman" exhibits and the "Rooms through time" were the highlights for us - but there is lots to see. The museum is a very short walk from the centre of town and is also just off the Walls...

Great for an educational experience for younger visitors. Wouldn't see it as a priority for older visitors.

The museum is housed in an old building and not very interactive although there are activities laid on for children. The display and information about the Roman tombstones was for us the best feature

No charge for entry. This is an old fashioned style Museum. The best part was the display of Roman artefacts

Some of the exhibits are a bit hodge podge (we found some stuff and displayed it), but there is a good video history of the area, and a quite interactive exhibit on some Roman finds. I'd recommend going if you'd like to find out about the area, and it's free to wander round (suggested donation of a couple pounds).
