This is my second visit to the Brewhouse yard museum, the first being about 15 years ago. I thought the museum was good then but it is even better now. The exhibits are excellent and the volunteer guides very knowledgeable. It is great value for money but the combined ticket with the castle museum is an absolute bargain. I would definitely recommend this museum to visitors of all ages

What a fabulous little museum! Well worth a visit. Loads to see over 3 floors across 4 houses. Staff were very friendly and happy to chat, encouraging questions andallowing handling of some of the items eg kitchen pots to see how heavy they are. The shops upstairs were amazing - the hairdressers looks frightening! Recommend a trip.

Firstly, the museum is only open at weekends and bank holidays (this is clear on the website), I assume due to shortage of funding and volunteers.

But, it is well worth the visit. It's an absolute minefield of Nottingham history with some very exciting displays, including a recreated street in the attic and a journey into the sand stove caves.

This was on our list of things to see while in Nottingham. Sadly when we arrived the gates were padlocked and no signs to say why.

This city does not have a lot to offer in the way of museums and one of the few was not open midweek in the school holidays what a missed opportunity

We really liked it here. It is no more than around half an hours worth but it is interesting and informative.
As I said on my Nottingham castle review, it's a shame the lad I paid the admission fee to didn't have the courage to speak up and tell me we could have got a reduced price ticket for both 'attractions'. Instead, he chose to sit there cowering behind the counter like a frightened mouse.

However, this is a good museum and the best part of our day in the city. Thumbs up.

Wonderful collection, the museum of Nottinghamshire Life. Series of roomd, shops etc recreated. Fascinating troglodyte air-raid shelter.
What a pity you can't get in without buying a ticket for the rip-off castle!

This I found was better than the castle, lots to do interesting recreations and lived in caves that back onto buildings that you could imagine living in. If you go on the right day it's free as the city council have done the odd free day. Much bigger than you think and next to a good eating pub built into the stone supporting the castle. Try the fish and chips or the beer

Thank you for taking the time to review our little museum. I am glad you enjoyed the caves. They are a real surprise when you visit

The Museum of Nottingham Life opened in 1977. The period rooms include a Victorian Kitchen and Parlour, and an early 20th century Chemist's. There are also toys and games through the ages. We hold our annual Light Night there (in early February) and our 1940s Knees Up in the grounds (2 May this year). The Victorian Schoolroom is open on request. Our Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays (12-4 PM at this time of year). So please pay us a visit!!
