Small but contains a well presented story of the Warwickshire area from pre-historic times to present. The Sheldon Map Tapestry was out on loan and not available, which was disappointing.

Very interesting history of the local area. Best thing was it is free. Located in the middle of the town so easy to pop in it when shopping.

While this museum is mostly aimed at a younger audience it still gives a lot more on Warwick history than the castle. Lots of hands on things for children, interesting exhibits on archeology, natural history, including a live beehive behind glass. On top of all this, it is free.

As a disabled person the climbing of the stairs was a problem, but well worth the struggle and discomfort. The history of Warwickshire was eye opening and interesting. It was free to enter, the only problem was parking

As the title said a nice little museum with some interesting exhibits, the tapestry is superb. A nice way to spend an hour just to learn a bit about the area.
