Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to Winkies Castle museum to get some information for our family history research. The volunteers there were so friendly and helpful and the place proved to be a mine of information. It's something of a Tardis too - looks like a tiny cottage on the outside, but there are several rooms and lots to see on the two floors inside. Well worth the £1.50 admission fee.

Having lived nearby for almost 40 years, and being married to a Marske lad who last visited here about 50 years ago, it seemed like time we visited - and very interesting it was, too.
Tiny but lots to see, and a very interesting video to watch.

Walked and driven past this place many times and often wondered what was inside. Entry fee was as cheap as chips , around £1.50 from memory and worth every penny. Very interesting and more inside than you can imagine. I'm told this is an independent muesem and is a credit to its operators.

This is a little gem! It is small but there is plenty more than you would expect looking at it from the outside. There are two floors, the steps maybe a little steep for some visitors. There is a theme upstairs at present for the centenary of the Great War. There is a small garden at the back with an outhouse. Inside is a small room with a video playing of how Marske was born and how it has changed over the years. A great little cottage and only £1.50 per adult which is more than worth its cost. A definite must to see. There is not a carpark at the vicinity, but a free carpark within Marske approx. 5 mins walk.

Holidaying in the area and walked past this little place several times, so decided to go in on a day it was open.
It's a small building but filled with really interesting 'stuff'. There was a special exhibition on to commemorate the end of WW1, giving local stories and pictures
It doesn’t take long to look round, but there is also a video about historic Marske to watch.
The volunteers who run it were lovely, welcoming and well informed, but not with you all of the time. Very friendly - they even offered us a home grown marrow as we left!
Definitely worth a visit.

Winkies Castle isn’t so much a museum as an eclectic collection of “stuff”. It is situated in a charming little 18th century building which is worth seeing in its own right.

The “museum” is looked after by an enthusiastic bunch of volunteers and, although it only took me 20 minutes or so to see the collection, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

The price of entry is a paltry £1.50 - so please also consider dropping a few extra coins in the donations box.

Winkie's Castle is no more than and ancient cruck house in the centre of Marske-by-the-sea. It is now a privately run museum packed with artefacts of local interest. Run by volunteers, the opening hours can be limited and may vary - check before you travel.

Hi Steve, thanks for your review. Just to clarify, Winkies Castle Folk Museum was founded by the late Jack Anderson in the 1970s. It is a collection of Jack's eclectic collection of artefacts housed in a 400 year old half cruck cottage in Marske High Street. It is now run and managed by a team of Volunteers and has a charitable status. We are open from Easter Saturday until the end of September. 11.00am - 3.45pm last entry, every Thurs, Sat, Sun and Bank Holiday Mon. Regards, Ann Sidgwick, Volunteer Manager

I don't know if it is the smallest museum in UK or Europe but it is interesting to see how was the life in Marske in the past. Really friendly staff
