This is not the best museum and art gallery in the world. It is, sadly, arranged very much in the old mould of museum display, but, thankfully, without all the latest hands-on wizardry which breaks down within days and is never repaired. There are exhibits of mild general historical interest, including several coin hoards, and some interesting Roman finds when... More

free museum and art gallery. The museum was very interesting, speaking about the history of Doncaster from the prehistoric times to the modern ones, but what really caught my attention was the art gallery: the paintings there were beautiful! I didn't much liked the animals in display: I sincerely hope they were just reproductions, not real animals embalmed and displayed.... More

2 mins walk from town centre, free of charge, plenty to look at-- even kept 2 Xbox crazy teenagers interested for an hour plus. Must say the Kings Own Light Infantry display is outstanding worth a visit for this alone. Never seen as many medals in one place really gives you an insight to what it must have been like... More

Well worth going back and seeing what's in store from time to time. There's always something going on. if you have kids then it's easy to lose an hour or so in here.

My family are regular visitors to the Museum and Art Gallery and happily spend time exploring the collections as well as temporary exhibitions. On the ground floor, the galleries are full of interesting exhibits, with the spectacular Racing Trophies, Roman antiquities unexpected treasures such as the football medals won by David Pegg, a local lad who was one of the...

I had not visited the Museum in several years, it was an OK way to spend an hour or so, pity the staff cannot show a bit more enthusiasm. It will tell you a little about the Doncaster district, but is looking very dated and shabby. Visit if you have an hour to spare when you are in Doncaster, but... More

Really interesting for young and old a few interactive displays to keep kids happy .Nice layout easy to walk round with some interesting local history. Free to enter nice little gift shop but could do with a cafe, rather than just a clix machine.

This is somewhere that the council could really do with investing some money to update and modernise, they have had the same things inside since I was a kid. Also it would be nice for it to be a bit more orientated around the history of Doncaster.
