only a small place but free and with free parking. Colouring table upstairs in the art gallery for children. Worth a visit on a rainy day.

I remember visiting Doncaster Museum when I was a teenager and seeing lots of stuffed animals. These had their own appeal, I suppose, I particularly liked the poor adder which looked like a plastic snake! Not any more. Doncaster Museum has been given a total revamp. If you want to learn about local history, it is very much worth a... More

This is a free museum, initially it looks small, but really it is a Tardis. We were welcomed on arrival and spent several hours looking, reading, and learning. The video from the 1930's to 1970's was brilliant. During midweek it was rather quiet making it very simple to get around. The upstairs has various exhibitions although one area was empty... More

Dear Eddie M, We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed looking round the Museum, and that you got a warm welcome when you arrived. As you so rightly say we are a little bit like the Tardis, with a lot more on the inside than you would expect. Regarding the empty space upstairs; you caught us between exhibitions,... More

Called in on a Sunday and spent a couple of hours engrossed in the displays and art on display. Too much to take in one visit and so will be going again

This little gem is easy to over look. It's hidden away and not terribly well positioned for visitors. However once inside it is a mix of different things. On child was excited by stuffed animals another delighted by a story about bricks. Kids were still enthusiastic about different things in the car on the way home. Well worth a visit.
