    Great museum to visit
    Really interesting museum. It tells the story of William Booth who founded the Salvation Army. The displays are laid out in very well. The information is very clear and easy to read. The garden is a nice quiet reflective space. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit

    Hidden gem of social history
    So pleased after many years of living close by to finally visit this museum on a Heritage Open Day. William and Catherine Booth’s journey through faith and their social activism is fascinating and as relevant to today as ever. Wonderful video of his tour in later life by the “new” motor car and a great collection of personal memorabilia. Highly recommend.

    William Booth’s birthplace museum and linked guided walk
    We took the opportunity as part of National Heritage Week to attend one of Julie’s guided walks around parts of Nottingham city centre which were important milestones in the life of William Booth. The walk finished with refreshments in the centre (kindly provided by Ian) followed by a visit to the well kept and interesting birthplace museum. Arrangements had also been made to open up a local church to view more items with local connections. We would highly recommend this tour for residents and visitors alike.

    Enlightment
    Professional arrangement to confirm our visit with two teenage grandchildren and a warm courteous welcome on arrival. Privilege to learn more about William and Catherine and their family creating good work which continues to this day. Free entrance and free flow tour a bonus. Thank you Julie. Whatever your interest it is well worth a visit to the place and area with George Green’s windmill around the corner.

    Birthplace/Museum of Salvation Army Founder
    We went to the William Booth Birthplace/Museum based on a Google search of things to do in Nottingham. It was well worth the visit as we knew nothing about the founder of the Salvation Army. He was an interesting, hardworking, good man. We were let in by a nice woman (an ex pat from USA who was very kind) who gave us a lot of background info. The exhibits were well laid out thorough. We enjoyed it very much.

Interesting place to visit and find out about the historical life of the foubder of The Salvation Army. Set in a well maintained and thoughtfully presented Victorian row of town houses, the rooms are presented in the way they would have been during William Booth's life as a child. Each room explains the different stages of his life, particularly his success internationally, in detail. Worth a visit.

Our visit to the William Booth Museum was one of the most interesting places that out club has experienced. And was enjoyed by all who went. I feel it is one of Nottinghams hidden gems and I recommend that everyone should visit whenever they can. Thankyou Julie for making us all feel welcome and making our visit interesting and enjoyable...Linda New Life Friendship Club

I went there as part of a party from our village local history group. We spent about two hours there. Our guide from the museum (Julie) gave a very good description and made the visit very interesting. We also visited St Stephen's Church very nearby and our guide gave a very good description of the involvement of the church in William Booth's life.
