It is amazing to think that people spent so much money on glasses of water in those days. The building itself was a delight. Harrogate has kept this establishment in... More

If you are in Harrogate for whatever reason and you have a spare couple of hours thesis entertaining and absorbing. The little tour of the springs downstairs is an addition since I last visited and added to the. Interest. Also the topical First World War display is fascinating

Really good museum to visit to learn about Harrogate and the its evolution. We visited it twice and the staff on both occasions were brilliant. You can spend an hour or two in here and feel you know the town without being over-loaded with material.

The museum was quite eclectic, covering both the spa and treatments as well as local history. A pleasant way to spend 30 minutes - especially welcome if the weather is poor.

It fell far below my expectation, for an attraction that made Harrogate what it is today the powers that be have made a pathetic attempt to draw visitors. It deserves much more than this
