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.

Not my ideal destination. Small and clinical gallery. Other than an impromptu Rolph Harris painting and a good Lancaster Bomber picture there wasn't much to hold our attention. 10 mins and you're done. But it's free, so if you're passing and it's raining - maybe.

With an hour to kill before the train I wandered to the museum and art gallery expecting a large civic building rather what appeared to be 60s school or library. Wants inside the exhibits were varied aimed at the younger generation including stuffed animals, Doncaster from Roman times to today. Some interesting artefacts. There is the light infantry museum as... More

On our start we were given a quiz she which was excellent and well thought out.and we spent a well packed 3 hours scanning the artifacts.I liked the fact that there... More

The official home for the Yorkshire Light Infantry exhibit, now a permanent feature in a specially built part of the museum. Doncaster museum also offers excellent coverage of local history and plans numerous events and exhibitions to coincide with school holidays. You could easily pass the afternoon away here and keep the kids entertained. The museum also hosts an art... More
