Spent a very pleasant time wondering around the museum and being taken down to the springs. Well worth the entrance fee.

We enjoyed the visit and felt quite nostalgic about some of the displays of toys and household objects that we had actually owned or used in our childhood. But we were not told that the price (which seemed rather high) included a visit to the well and a taste of the waters. We peered down at the well through the... More

I really enjoyed seeing the costumes from Agatha Christie films and some wonderful jewellery from the local collection. It's a gem set in a pretty , interesting town.

I enjoyed this little museum and the tour down to the "waters" because I enjoy history. This American really appreciates England's ability to not only preserve but relish its rich history!

An interesting look at the history of Harrogate. It is a bit expensive considering the size of the place but the price does include a visit to and talk on the wells. Most of the 'waters' are now deemed unfit for human consumption but there is a tap on the exterior of the building where you can try the remaining... More

Well kept and full of information. If you want to know about the Spa and the history of Harrogate and its boom time this is the place to go. Had an Agatha Christie TV series costume exhibition as well on our visit which was interesting too. Not expensive as others have said and worth a visit! No photo taking though!

Only small but ok. The lady that gave the presentation was very good. We went down the stairs to see and smell the water in the well. The presentation is very informative and give you the history of Harrogate.

We visited here and really enjoyed ourselves for an hour or so. Lots of information given on boards on the walls and can have the chance to buy a small book for £1.95 with some of the information in. Disappointing how you cant take pictures around the museum as I would have liked to look back at them some time.
