This is a good exhibition of past life in Nottingham - set pieces on various themes. My favourite was the wartime area in the cave on the back of the houses.

Went around the museum with grandchildren age 11,8 and 4. They all enjoyed certain aspects of the museum. Spent about 2 hours going around. Loads of interesting information if you are from Nottingham or not. Didn't get chance to look round the schoolroom, but I have been around that a few years ago that is also interesting in particular to... More

Worth a look at this recreation of the life and times of our forbears, and a taste also of the caves. Interesting for all ages, with interactive diversions for the young and endless opportunities for reminiscence for the less young.

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.
