At £2.50 it is a bargain! We arrived a few minutes before it opened and sat talking to the wonderful volunteers that were working in the garden and the museum. One went and made us a cup of coffee while we waited. The exhibits and the building are interesting and give a view of local life though various times in... More

Went here to find it closed. Only open at weekends and on bank holidays. However it is next door to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, so we visited there instead.

The cost is £2.50 or free with a Nottingham Castle entrance ticket, and this museum is worth every penny! It's like a TARDIS in that it looks relatively small from the outside, but that is deceiving! It is huge! Well worth a mooch!

This little place is like a Tardis - you go in and think it's small but there's so much packed in there, and many more rooms than you'd imagine! Interesting place to spend an hour or so. There's a historic pub next door so great way to learn some things about Nottingham and then have a drink or spot of... More

Also known as the Museum of Nottingham Life this is a fantastic place to visit. Situated just outside the walls of the castle this museum was a joy to visit. Nothing spectacular in it, just things you'll remember from your childhood, your parent's childhood and probably even your grandparent's childhood. I was made to feel quite old when I realised...

Fantastic hands on exhibition. Friendly informative staff. Brought back so many memories. A hidden jewel which fascinated my children who couldn't believe how things used to be and their grandma who remembered so many of the items. Must see!!!

Such a great place to go on your own or with children. So much to look at and very interactive. You are allowed to take your own time to look at things, but the staff are lovely. You should definitely also spend some time in their gift shop and also get some old fashioned sweets.

Unplanned visit but we were re-visiting Nottingham Castle as part of radio Nottingham's ' big day out'. I have never been before despite having lived in Notts for 20 odd years (it never seemed to be open). Beautiful buildings and fascinating exhibits. Completely unstuffy, take as long as you like, staff leave you alone but are on hand with great... More
