“Original and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Historical excavations are usually not too interesting, but this is different. The museum is full of black, shiny glass, on which all the exhibits presented a delightfully. There are a lot of multimedia devices.

“Need 2 hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

This was a great interactive museum if history is your thing. There were a lot of school children running around with their teachers and I really don't think this is a place for a massive group of children. For a family, probably good. There are interesting screens giving info about the different times, including crafts, foods and housing. They have uncovered burial grounds and artifacts from the immediate area which are on display. Also, films describing the history of the area are in several rooms. You view a film, then move on to the next room for further info. Think there are about five rooms with continuing historical films. Tickets are times, so purchase ticket in advance for time you want. Both museum and ticket purchase office are located in the cloth house, though we found them in two separate locations.

If you love history you'll love this. Best to book this if youre on a tight schedule to avoid disappointment. We were there for 5 days and only just managed to get in.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Contrary to one of the previous reviewers, I felt the quality of the information was excellent. It's fascinating to find out more about the history of the Market Square going back almost a millennium. They've also set it up really well so that it's easy to find your way around.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

The background to this museum maybe amazing and what they've done is very impressive but the quality of information is very poor. We walked around not really knowing what we were looking at. Would have benefited from an audio system. Would not recommend to others.
