Small and interesting

Not a huge museum but had very nice displays. There was a music/poem recital on when I visited which gave it a lovely atmosphere. Very helpful staff.

The lady did not just tell us about the pump room, but why the wells sprung up all over Harrogate and the general history of the town - it was fab, and as we had just attended the Knitting and Sewing Show, the historical costumes on display was a bonus.

I think that this Pump room museum is one of Harrogate's hidden gems, it is a truly wonderful experience and well worth a visit. We qualified for a concession on our visit as we are over 65. I think we paid £2.90 each, and every penny was well spent. Period costumes are on display, plenty of exhibits well documented certainly... More

This is a great little museum. Well thought out and presented. The addition of the costumes from Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte films were a bonus. The staff were very welcoming and informative. Enjoyed the brief tour into the basement to find out about the sulphur well. It only costs £4.00 an adult which is good value.

An absolute must if you want to see the sulphur well. Go when there is a tour due. They had a lovely and varied exhibition and selection of other items when we went taking in life in Harrogate, Edwardian clothing and egyptology!

This sounded a very interesting Museum. The reception was warm and we were given very clear instructions. The Museum has links to Agatha Christie, Egyptology through Howard Carter of Tutankhmun fame, Charles Dickens and The Tour de France. Assorted costumes from "Sense and Sensibility", "Jane Eyre" and "Mansfield Park" were on temporary display at the time of our visit. The... More

The museum entrance fee is £4 an offers so much. From the sulpar wells to the Russian Royal family and its connection to Harrogate. See the museums display of old fashoined shops, Egyption treasures and lots more.

Having recently moved to Harrogate, we visited here on a day of playing tourist to escape the Yorkshire rain. The museum was a pleasant surprise, far bigger than expected and incredibly well-designed. The highlight of the trip was definitely the visit to the underground springs - we heard a fantastic fifteen minute talk about the history of the spas and... More

The Royal Pumprooms were the first attraction we visited when we arrived in Harrogate and was very easy to find. We joined one of the tours (3 per day, details on their website) of the wells beneath the museum. The two staff/volunteers were knowledgable and enthusiastic and the gentleman who took us down to the wells gave us a succinct... More
