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

I have visited this museum on a few occasions and it always seems different. It is good fun visiting with people that are younger such as your children or grand children because you can go into the when I was your age mode and they somehow realise how lucky they are. I have never yet found the second part of... More

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.
