In Nottingham for the weekend and came across this museum. A really interesting place, took us back to our childhood - so many things we remembered.

This was on the list to do but when arrived it was shut. There was no notice as to why and it was in the advertised opening times. From the reviews here it looked a good place to visit. This built up expectations and ended in frustration hence the low mark.

This museum is interesting and informative - I can guarantee that you will come across something that makes you say, 'I had one of those'! It is well worth the cost, and you can buy a ticket which gets you into the Castle as well as this museum. The gardens have just won a Green Flag award. The museum and... More

Brilliant museum that brought back many memories for me. Well worth a visit, especially for people of a certain age !! It is situated below the castle walls, next to The Olde Trip to Jerusalem public house. Please note.....tickets purchased for the castle, also allow you free entry into this museum.

I took my six year old here and luckily it was free entry to the museum on that day, although I believe it is normally around £6. There is a mix of items from a few decades ago to much further back and different type of rooms and shops are displayed. This is all very interesting but the highlight for... More

I think this appeals to two groups, those who remember some of the items and younger people who have no recollection at all. It's worth a visit.

We found things that we remembered from our early years as well as things from well before our time. Quite interesting throughout and well worth the visit especially as it was on a free open day. Could be interesting for young and old alike.

We did not have time to visit the castle and this was a very good alternative and good value at £2.50. It give an insight into how people lived 1900-1960. Part of the museum is built into the rock so you can see how these cave rooms were used as part of everday life - laundry, garage , anderson shelter... More

We didn't intend to visit here, however the entrance fee was included with our castle visit so we thought we would take look. The museum is a row of small houses, which at some point in the past, the owners decided they were going to extend their living space by tunnelling into the caves. One of the owners used theirs...
