Just loved the place -- so much to see -- the old building itself is a gen from the past. Maybe necessary to phone to check that it is open during your anticipated visiting time

A lot of visitors to Nottingham were waiting and wondering if it was open or not,a lot of them foreign tourists. Unfortunately it wasn't ,even though the sign said it should have been.... More

We wasted a Sunday travelling to Nottingham to visit the museum with our young grandson only to find it closed. We checked on the website prior to our trip and it said it was open. There were no notices on the website or at the museum to say it was closed. We had to enquire at the castle. It had... More

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
