We visited as part of Heritage weekend lots to see and very child friendly. Loved wandering around the rooms furnished in period. Also loved wandering around the caves. Well worth a visit

Firstly, the museum is only open at weekends and bank holidays (this is clear on the website), I assume due to shortage of funding and volunteers. But, it is well worth the visit. It's an absolute minefield of Nottingham history with some very exciting displays, including a recreated street in the attic and a journey into the sand stove caves.

This city does not have a lot to offer in the way of museums and one of the few was not open midweek in the school holidays what a missed opportunity

The museum is a maze of historical shops and living spaces. Very well done. The guides make sure you don't miss a thing.

Very interesting museum with exhibits of Nottingham life through the ages. Toy and childhood part very good. My children enjoyed the scenes in the caves and the old shops.

This is a lovely museum and I visited when the 1940's event was on. Lovely atmosphere and there is so much to look at in the museum. I enjoyed going into the caves at the side of the museum where there was more information on the use of the caves. Not really accessible for disabled people because of the steep... More

As you get a combined ticket with the Nottingham castle, be sure to go at the weekend, as this museum is well worth visiting, for grandchildren to see what toys looked like "in the old days" and for grandparents to reminisce.

The wartime experience with an air raid will let you realise just how vulnerable everyone felt, especially if you lived in a city targetted by the bombing raids. You can get a flavour of life in Nottingham at different times and see how much thinmgs have changed even in the relatively... More
