On a wet weekend we looked for something to do on a Sunday afternoon and found this little gem of a museum. Entrance fee is only £2.50 each which reflects this is a small museum and only takes about 1.5 hours to visit. It was interesting to see how people lived in the early part of the 20th century. The...

A very nice museum, especially for children. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Located right next to the oldest pub in England and very near the castle and other visitor attractions. Worth your time!

Allow plenty of time, very absorbing detail from recreated rooms, through shops to caves and wartime recollections. Even a play room with range of old toys and games. The volunteers are very friendly and informative, but unfortunately a current shortage of them means this treasure is only open at weekends. Free but donations very welcome.

Great museum showing you about life in Nottingham and the UK over the centuries. Well laid out and easy to follow. Amazing walk through a few of the caves. Was included in castle entrance ticket but would pay extra to see. Don't miss it!

Brewhouse Yard was a great place to visit to experience life at the turn of the 19th Century below Nottingham Castle. The team there were very welcoming and informative. Laying the houses out in a series of different senarios gave a good impression of life there at that time. If you have an hour to spare in nottingham here is... More

What a great museum that recreates the past. Loved it. The rooms were laid out as they would have been in the past. A surgery, barber, shoemaker, drygoods, pharmacy, hairdresser, literally a whole village. The basement/ cellar caves were used as air raid shelters in the 1940s .

See the old chemist shop and toys and items from 50 years ago. How it has all changed. Bit of stair climbing and darkish and gloomy inside bit sets the mood for this period. Take your tickets from the caves tour for free entry. Well worth the half hour around.

We chose to go to this museum after the trip to the caves around the Castle, as it was free if showing the ticket used for the caves' trip. Very detailed reconstruction of a early 1920s cottage in Nottingham, with how a typical 1920s street in Nottingham wold have looked like and some toys and other objects from that period.... More

Having visited the castle we made our way down to the museum and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (admission is free with your castle tickets). The staff were really friendly and helpful and are a credit to the place. The caves are well worth seeing.

I haven't been here since the 80s and unfortunately my happy memories were not to be re-lived! Where did the original old bedroom and the great big bedsteads go? The caves used to be much more "rugged" and there was a great collection of helmets and gas masks etc. It's all just a bit too clinical now with lots of... More
