The ground floor was mainly natural history & geology whilst the upstairs was more social history & local interest. The staff were pleasant & welcoming,offering advice... More

Unfortunately currently closed for refurbishment following a Lottery Grant check before you go, right next to Market place so easy to walk too if staying in Warwick

I supported a disabled young lady to the museum today. We arrived at the museum and looked around the ground floor & were very much looking forward to discovering more within the museum however we were greatly disappointed to find out that the museum does not have a lift so we were unable to access the upper floor. We were... More

A very nicely laid out museum with friendly staff. Very much into geology and pre-history,with a stunning ichthyosaur and a giant Irish deer. Upstairs is a good exhibit of Warwick history,and a revolting (to me) taxidermy set up,which space could be much better utilised.

Visited this for the first time. For a small museum, it is well worth a visit. Much better than I expected. I spent a good 1 1/2 hours there.

This museum is free to walk around and had a lot of interesting exhibits to look at. This museum is set over several floors and the exhibits are nicely spaced out. On the upper floor the museum has stuffed animals (which have all died of natural causes) nicely laid out and possible to photograph. There are several eras of history... More

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.
