Interesting little museum!

Lovely building and informative museum if you have a spare couple of hours in Harrogate. We visited one afternoon and enjoyed the museum, worth a visit if you have some extra time.

A tiny musuem,worth a visit ,but it takes no longer than a hour to go around,and it relies alot on you reading the boards displayed on the walls.

This Museum is the mainstay of what Harrogate is all about however there is not a great deal to see and the displays are not great.

Beautiful building but confused interior, it's not sure what it's trying to be. But I've been spoilt by London's enormous museums and galleries. It has some interesting small collections. Worth a wander on a rainy day and maybe good for kids as they do activities.

This small museum gives an account of Harogate's past glory as Vitorian 'society' spa town. In effect 'all you need to know about Harrogate in 45 minutes'. Worth a visit.

I was curious to find out about the spas and the sulphur wells and hoping that we would get to taste the waters but health and safety jobsworths had stopped this. It was good but a little underwhelming.

A hour in my opinion is more than enough time to look around. Some interesting items, and fashion, Its reasonably priced for what is there.

The building itself is worth a look. The information and displays are worth the admission. Great variety of displays, in addition to the history of the baths. We saw fashions from the 50s to 80s, a jewelry collection, Egyptian artifacts, and were even treated to a "tour" of the underground springs and 2 different "sniffs." The original bar where waters...

We were so glad we visited but thought we could go down to the well as some people on here said you could visit but it was not accessible. However we still enjoyed the visit and found lots of facts we did not know.
