Had a nice time recently taking our grandchild to the museum, although he was a little bored, I enjoyed going in used to go when I was little. Brought back memories, you can also go down the magnesia well, which we did, the Edwardians and rich folk used to drink this water to stay healthy.

Popped in for a quick look around and was pleasantly surprised. Free entry (at the time of our visit) and lots of interesting info about Harrogate's golden spa days. An interesting, if not brief trip.

Interesting but only worth a visit on a wet day. Worth the £4 entry fee but would not be happy paying more.

This is a really nice compact museum. The tour guide provided really interesting information on how the waters of Harrogate healed people and many travelled quite a distance to avail of it. There are also some egyptian artefacts to see which have been donated to the Pump Rooms Museum. Entrance fee is £4 per adult and was worth the admission... More

The story of Harrogate and its development is well presented and illustrated but there is little else to capture the imagination. Even if you studied all of the material on display in detail it would take less than an hour to go around.

Lovely little museum, giving some good detailed information into how the waters of Harrogate healed its people. There were some i teresting egyptian artefacts too, and beautoful jewellery from a Russian Tsarina no less! It was only £4 per adult and was worth the admission fee. Really beautiful architecture too.

Interesting little museum, to find out about this spa town and its growth. Other displays from different eras not directly linked to the spa. Given guided visit into the pump room to smell the sulphur spa water that used to be used for medicinal purposes. If you have ever visited Iceland, you will recognise the smell. Good to pass an...

Good to find out the history of how the town of Harrogate initially came to be. Plenty to read and a short trip mid afternoon down to the actual pump room which we came back for. Only £4 per adult so didn't expect to be in for hours but some interesting history.

This very small museum was good value and well worth a visit. The only down side was the amount of reading required. I think children would find it difficult to keep an interest as the wasn't any interactive exhibits. The story of harrogate really interests me so the adult in me really enjoyed our visit, the child in me was... More
