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.

Well worth a visit, no matter what your age. 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

We paid and went into Nottingham Castle. The ticket gave us free access to this museum. It was excellent. Within 4 houses was a snapshot of all aspects of Nottingham life from, shops, rooms, childhood toys and games, life during the Second World War and life lived within the sandstone caves. We only had 45 minutes till closing time and... More

A nice little museum to kill an hour. The rooms were clearly laid out and we had actual Saxons when we visited! I enjoyed seeing the selection of Scouting stuff (wish there was Girlguiding stuff too!) and the toys. The dolls house is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I fear the museum will be a victim of local government cuts as staff in... More

I have been here a few times and find it fascinating. It is now a museum set beneath the castle wall. There is plenty to see inside ie an old dining room set out, an old shop where fresh produce could be bought and an air raid shelter and caves and much more besides. The gardens are tended by volunteers,... More

Ducked in here as our ticket to the Castle gave us entry and really enjoyed it. I struggled to move the kids on as they were so keen to look at the displays. Really liked seeing an anderson shelter and the baby/birthing room

One of those little places that you think may be worth half an hour but where you spend a lot longer - we had a train to catch and so had to go through a bit quicker than would have liked. Gave you a good feel of life at different points in the past

Brewhouse Yard is a really interesting WW2 museum.There is a working air raid shelter, interesting rooms set up in the era- shop, bedroom etc. There are talks about rationing. It is definitely worth a look and children, especially, find it interesting.
