It's a good job this museum is free to enter - my husband is usually very keen on such places, but he was in and out in 10 minutes. It was empty on the day we visited, a wet Bank Holiday Saturday, when such places are normally packed. The exhibits were ok, I suppose, but disappointing there were so few.... More

They are on the same grounds. This museum is very interesting. Great costumes and jewels. Children will love it. It's close to the dungeon.

This was a small gem of a discovery. Enough to engage young children as well as adults. Informative and with some rare items on display and free to enter. Well worth a visit and would happily recommend it to anyone that find themselves in Warwick

Not a massive building, no disabled accessible upstairs as lots of steps to next level. I waited for my husband to look round upstairs and he wasn't long at all. Free entry. Shops and restaurants in the square around the museum and a Saturday Market.

Thought I would do this museum in only 5 minutes but stayed for more than ½ hour & could have easily spent more time. Would recommend a visit to this small but engaging museum.

Nice displays if you are interested in Natural History and prehistory. Probably more interesting for kids.
