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 around this lovely little museum with friends on a short stay in the area. Lots of local interest which helped put some of the area into context for our stay. Helpful staff and good children's attractions. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Small but very interesting museum. I am in an electric wheelchair and the facilities were fine for using the chair. The museum was free to get in, the staff were very nice and helpful. Parking was good, not specifically for the museum, but for the shops close by

A great local museum. I had a 2 day break in Melton as I had never been before. I was really impressed by this museum. Very good displays, understandable, and up to date. Lovely welcome from lady on front desk. To be honest I expected a few old oil paintings of people I had never heard of and maybe a bit of pie history, but this really went much more than that. It really is worth a visit - I wont spoil the fun in exploring it, but I loved the bits about "old meltonians" - if that's the right term! Monty Python connection I never knew about. Wow.

Free to visit .I loved the architectural building and the history behind the generosity of Carnegie.My first time to the town so was interested in its history . Although it is well laid out because of the children’s activities it wasn’t possible to get up to some of the exhibits .I learnt about the expression To paint the town red .Maybe because I wasn’t with children none of the staff spoke to me ,i didn’t feel welcome .

Gem of a museum. There's shop displays for a pie maker, a Stilton cheese maker and a chemist. The History of Melton Mowbray is covered with very useful information boards. And several screens with old photographs accompanied by more info. Very nicely done, the funding they received for their renovation has been well spent. I will definitely revisit as I didn't get round all the screens and exhibits.
