Decided to take a trip to this museum and art gallery one Saturday with my elderly parents and husband. Lots of interesting things to look at and learn about, free entry, little reception area where you can get a coffee. Really enjoyed it and only a short drive from Sheffield. Would go back again for another look round and learn... More

Visited on a quiet Sunday morning during an already scheduled visit to Doncaster (for shopping). The museum was very quaint and low key, very unassuming but perhaps too much so. The exhibits within the limited floor space are quite interesting, both me and my 6 year old found things to enlighten us, and it has really been put together with... More

There is a lot to see here, and it is all really interesting. There is always something going on, and it is great for kids. Learning with enjoyment!

A museum that covers local finds and explanations of the more national history - obviously they have a special exhibition this year for WW1 centenary but their military sector goes way beyond this and is effectively a regimental collection.

A place with a difference for a small family wedding. Well laid out with helpful staff. Parking could have been better

Nice friendly small museum, best of all it's free although any small donation will help keep them going. On my visit they had an expo of photography from some of the local camera clubs - some pretty good photographs, nice to see photography as an art is not gone with the wind.

For a local museum th is offers fascinating exhibits about local history as well as hosting occasional exhibitions. Of international ranking. The recent George Grosz was an excellent example of the latter. The permanent collection, varied from time to time, is also well worth a look.

Although not a huge museum or even well funded this place is amazing for what little money it gets via the local council. I highly recommend taking your kids down and showing them something other than a boring park, huge gallery and lots of well made and planned out exhibits

Growing up at a time when every museum was full of glass display cabinets, and you went to admire the exhibits and various objects, I've never been a fan of the modern style of museum design and, when Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery was refurbished several years ago, I wasn't very impressed. It was so long ago that I had... More
