This curious feature highlights some of the key points of Harrogate's illustrious past as a high end spa town. There are some quirky exhibits throwing the spotlight on some very Victorian preoccupations and you can see one of the sulphur wells. For such a small building there is much to see and a visit is justified. children as well as... More

Lovely little museum with a display of costumes from the 50's through to the 80's and a section on World War 1. The info on the pump house and it's origins etc was supplemented by a tour of the well and a very informative talk. Well worth the money and would recommend visiting.

Would recommend a visit to the pump rooms if visiting Harrogate, as it provides a history of the spa town. It is small and probably a bit overpriced. The talk on the waters is interesting, however, you will need to ask for the times, as these only take place with a guide. At the time of the visit, they had... More

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

This small museum is well laid out and manages to coverage a variety of subjects in a small space. At the time we visited there were exhibitions on Agatha Christie Film Costumes, Harrogates contribution to WW1, Life in old Harrogate. This was in addition to to the water wells. The admission charge included a visit down to the wells and... 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.
