We really liked it here. It is no more than around half an hours worth but it is interesting and informative.
As I said on my Nottingham castle review, it's a shame the lad I paid the admission fee to didn't have the courage to speak up and tell me we could have got a reduced price ticket for both 'attractions'. Instead, he chose to sit there cowering behind the counter like a frightened mouse.

However, this is a good museum and the best part of our day in the city. Thumbs up.

Best bit is the John Player Exhibition especially the film featuring staff who worked for John Player during the last forty years. It was really interesting to hear their stories of what life was like working for the company.

This museum is located near the bottom of the castle.It contains rooms dresed up in period style.so for example there is a Victorian kitchen and dining room ,a pharmacy from about 100 years ago and an air raid shelter.Upstairs there are various exhibition areas.There is an exhibition on how domestic and home appliances changed through the 20th century.there is a rather more contentious exhibition on the John player factories which employed people locally.the museum have covered their backs by saying that they do not endorese smoking and this is part of the areas local history.Ironically this is the only room that gives you any idea that you are in a museum in Nottingham.I have seen similar displays as are exhibited downstairs in loads of museums including a local one.I spent about one and a half hours in the museum.i found it interesting even though there was no great connection to Nottingham.

A well researched, well presented social history museum covering a lot of local events, products and people. Good use of rooms to portray different times in the city history, from the bombings of WW2 to the local industrial and lace heritage, and the victorian workhouse era. A good few hours well spent for anyone.
