The National Holocaust Centre and Museum Laxton
#1 of 52 Museums in Nottinghamshire
Having visited both Poland and Germany visiting many WW2 museums, this small museum in the Nottingham countryside was amazing.
A wonderful museum for all ages, thought provoking, informative, reflective and educational, alongside some amazing testimonies from those who had lived through the Holocaust.
Nottingham Industrial Museum Nottingham
#2 of 52 Museums in Nottinghamshire
It reminded me of the stories that my Grandad would talk to me about, there were so many engines and the smell took me back to visiting museums with my Grandad.

I would like to think that some of the items that were originally found here and moved to other museums could find there way back.

National Civil War Centre Newark Museum Newark-on-Trent
#10 of 52 Museums in Nottinghamshire
Great museum full of facts about the civil wars in the 1600's, displays of weapons and uniforms, full of information, much of it interactive which makes it fun and less stuffy than many museums.
Often the large museums become a walk around attraction with little to do but look at some small amount of interesting things in glass cases, then move on.
