Interesting and free

Quite interesting as it was free, interactive displays. Informative regarding the geology of the Warwickshire area. Good place to go on a rainy day.

Free admission, though donations accepted. Found the upstairs best, we were fascinated by the honey bees and learning about the fire if Warwick

As a free entry this Museum is worth a visit - but I was surprised with its contents, I expected it to give the history of Warwickshire, but it seems to concentrate on stuffed animals, teddies and dinosaurs. I understand there are a lot of museums in the town, but I was disappionted with this one

Nice enough museum, but a little old fashioned in places, particularly the collection of stuffed animals, which seem a bit passe to me. However the prehistoric items are very interesting.

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.
