We really enjoy our visits here. There is so much to see and do and everytime we visit, we always see something new. Our two year old loves the big 'teddy' bear and the dinosaurs. Yes, it is free to enter but we always donate something as this building and its exibits are extremely educational and to ever lose such... More

The museum was free and interesting but felt more suited to children than adults but worth a look around.

I visited Warwickshire Museum as part of a research trip for a project and was very impressed. I visit a lot of museums as part of my work and thought that this museums was very well done. The two focuses of the museum were local geology and local archaeology. The local geology exhibitions were interesting and not something often seen.... More

Staff are great, will be sorry to be moving from Warwick :-( Attended a taxidermy demo and explanation of ethical procedures. Brilliant guest lecturer and fantastic staff, low cost including some good fizz.

Right in the middle of town, lots of interesting exhibit, think it would be great for kids as lots for them to interact with. Helpful staff and a little gift shop.

I love museums & I applaud the continual existence of this one, but even I struggle with its odd idea of attracting visitors: it is nice to address the geological history of Warwickshire & good to see the many prehistoric finds unearthed, but as the first & prime exhibits, I could see why people might get put off. A little... More

I popped into the museum with a friend on a day out in Warwick and was delighted to see such a fabulous set of displays; the ground floor is dedicated to the prehistoric past of the local area, with fossils from all around the local area, beautifuly displayed and with loads of interesting notes and explanitory information. The first floor... More

It's mainly 19C stuff, quaint, is what it is, very interesting, they are adding to the collection but a long way to go if it is to be a major attraction, spent an hour in here and that was enough. Lovely place, building and surroundings, then again, it is Warwickshire.

A free museum and the staff were really knowledgeable, filling in any gaps and with some very useful bits of information. All without being intrusive. In some places where staff know everything they feel they must keep talking but this gentleman got it just right.
