Friendly guide explained the various springs that have been found at the centre of the town and that gave rise to its development. Good displays to show how the town developed, how the spa and how it declined as a centre as health spa. Worth an hour to understand Harrogate.

To be honest there isnt a huge variety of stuff to do in harrogate. Dont set your sights too high but this is a nice place and suggest you catch one of the chats by a curator. As an engineer i thought there might be some pumps , wonder why i thought that? Harrogate has splendid architecture and the valley... More

An interesting place to visit. We spent an enjoyable hour or more reading all about how it was. They have some interesting things from the past. Also they are happy to explain anything you would like to know.I f you ask they will take you down stairs.

An interesting attraction worth a visit to learn a bit about Harrogate. A bit small to class as a real Museum. Took us about 20 minutes to go round.

Disappointed that the facility to 'take the waters' (although rank) was no longer available. The lone tap states 'Not suitable for consumption'. Displays were interesting.

We were recommended to go here. There was a very friendly and very knowledgeable young lady selling the tickets who welcomed us. It was reasonably priced and there is no time limit to your visit. The layout of the displays meant that it flowed well and gives you a good background to Harrogate. The tour of the wells is worth... More

There is not a lot for the average punter to see here, and so if you are a visitor to the town then you may be underwhelmed. But I have to tell you, that I and my son's had a very interesting hour or so here. They have excellent children's activity packs and my boy's thoroughly enjoyed working their way... More

Very disappointing compared to other Pump Rooms i have visited, the so called museum has very few exhibits and is mainly boards to read, good job they have concessions for OAP's and children otherwise you would feel ripped off, sorry not something i could recomend even for an interesting half hour.

Plenty of history on show but you can't take photos, I can't really understand why and this wasn't made clear on the tour, you won't need long here either but overall its good. The history of the pump and the baths is all on show.
