In the centre of Carlisle, easy to walk to from the train station just head up English Street onto Castle Street. Took my Grandson who loved lots. First there is the mock-up of two old train carriages, he wanted to sit there all day, there is the Roman wall mock-up you can walk along. In one room the light changes... More

I loved the old Tullie House Museum and visited it regularly when I was a kid, although this new Museum is well laid out , I feel its very clinical and doesn't have the atmosphere of the original.

This was a great museum to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it. Although we did not have our grandchildren with us, we were impressed by all the inter-active things for children to do there.

This is a comprehensive local museum with some, essentially, national items on display. This is particularly true of the pre-raphelite painting and some of the china is excellent. The galleries are a little eclectic but nicely laid out and stimulating for children as well as adults. The cafe was a bit random but the staff nice and the coffee good.... More

Having walked Hadrian's Wall, we were enticed to finish the trip off by the lure of exhibits from the wall on display at the Tullie. The truth is that the Roman artefacts are first-class and well worth the visit, despite the entrance fee, particularly some of the jewellery. The exhibits on the Ground Floor are displayed in an excellent manner,... More

The Roman displays down stairs are second to non... More
