What a little gold mine, from the outside you would think it was very small but there was so much to see on every floor of the building. We would recommend this as a good place to take school age children although there is a small play area for younger children if they get fed up. lots of army uniforms... More

Small museum near the castle. My ticket for the castle also included entrance to this museum so it was worth a quick visit. Has loads of exhibits from Nottingham through the last century. The museum is housed in a row of 17th century cottages, which have been very well preserved. Worth visiting if you're in the area.

For only £2.50 you can visit these fantastic row how old houses built into the sandstone of Nottingham ham in the base of the castle. All the rooms were amazing - some restored rooms as they were in the olden days yo fully explore, some housed exhibitions, some even a whole array of shops and of course part sandstone caves....

Great value for money and enjoyed every minute. The staff there were really informative and the exhibits excellent. There were lots of things to touch for the kids too.

This is my second visit to the Brewhouse yard museum, the first being about 15 years ago. I thought the museum was good then but it is even better now. The exhibits are excellent and the volunteer guides very knowledgeable. It is great value for money but the combined ticket with the castle museum is an absolute bargain. I would... More

What a fabulous little museum! Well worth a visit. Loads to see over 3 floors across 4 houses. Staff were very friendly and happy to chat, encouraging questions andallowing handling of some of the items eg kitchen pots to see how heavy they are. The shops upstairs were amazing - the hairdressers looks frightening! Recommend a trip.

Visited this intimate yet wonderful museum during a free weekend recently. It is packed to the rafters with all sorts of objects from all different eras . The museum has different room settings e.g. Victorian Parlour & Kitchen, a 1940s shop, a room all about the history of the area & museum which made for fascinating reading. The there is... More

The history of the building and area. the displays of the bygone era that is not lost because of museums like this. The toys upstairs brought back so many memories of the things that I played with in the 1950's and 60's.

So unique and very different from the usual type of museum. Lots to see - I took my mum who is in her 70's and she remembered lots of the items on show. The toys and games, long with the households items and food. Also the replica rooms and how life was when she was a child..go and see it.... More

Popped in here as we had a couple of hours spare before meeting friends. Cost was only £2.50 each and it was well worth the money. Various rooms to see on the ground floor - old shop and barbers before we went down into the cellar. In here you could see the back of the houses where they had 'extended'... More
