A wonderful visit
Feb 2020
We were delighted to visit this world-class museum. Julie was so helpful, and provided many extra insights into William and Catherine Booth's lives and ministry. Her knowledge was fabulous. We were thrilled to see many precious items belonging to the Booths, and Julie even arranged a visit for us to the nearby church where William was christened.

A must-visit museum in Nottingham
Feb 2020 • Couples
William Booth Birthplace Museum is a hidden gem (among many) in the city of Nottingham. It offers an eye-opening experience into the history of the largest Christian charity in the world, its founder’s beginnings and passion to make a difference to the lives of the most vulnerable of people. The service provided by the museum curator was excellent - welcoming, warm and informative. I highly recommend visiting this museum.

Visit to the William Booth Birthplace Museum
Feb 2020
Nottingham has many attractions better known than the birthplace of the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth, nevertheless this attraction deserves to be listed alongside Robin Hood. The houses were built in the early nineteenth century and the staff tell the story of Booth's early life through the themes in each of the rooms. It is marvellous to think that these houses were preserved when the rest were swept away in the rage of redevelopment of the Sixties. There is also a Dickensian feel to the buildings and perhaps more can be made of this in future. It is certainly not a "Disney" type attraction.

Fabulous Candlelit Tour
Feb 2020 • Solo
The highlight of Nottingham Light Night for me was my candlelit tour of this wonderful little museum which is much less know than it should be. I’m not a religious person myself but to have the birthplace of the founder of the Salvation Army in our city and for it not to be more generally known seems a crime to me. The charming American curator of the museum took us from room to room reading extracts from some of Booth’s writing. Such a sensible man for a Victorian and his views on life, diet and bring up children would make him a celebrity today - as I suppose he was then. Don’t miss this gem, seek it out and arrange a tour. Nottingham should make much more use of this man’s legacy. Better than Robin Hood!

Interesting little museum
Feb 2020
Well worth a visit - interesting for the history of a house of the period as well as for the history of the founding of the Salvation Army. It's also handy for Green's Mill so you can visit them both in the same trip.

Interesting Hidden Gem
Oct 2019
This is a small museum, tucked away in a hidden corner of Nottingham, not far from the perhaps better known Green's Mill. However, it is certainly worth an hour of your time if you are in the neighbourhood and curator Julie was very knowledgeable and informative without being too garrulous or intrusive. I came away knowing much more about William Booth, his life and times, than I did when I arrived. A good stopover for anyone interested in social history.

Informative visit
Oct 2019
Super visit to William Booth Museum and to St Stephen's Church. Julie gave a very interesting overview of William Booth's life before we went into the Museum. The exhibits in the house are very well displayed and all the information clearly presented.

This was a lovely afternoon. Julie the Curator showed us round the museum and gave a very interesting talk on how life would have been in Nottingham during William Booth’s childhood. I would recommend this very highly.
