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...

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.
