“Dormans Museum”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

If you want a good free day for yorself and the kids then this is the place.
Lots of activities with hands on for the kids, and they will love all different exhibites on view.
The grow ups will enjoy the old street and cinema.
Give yourselves a good half day.

“Nice museum”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Nice place to spend an hour looking at the history of Middlesbrough. The kids love the water room where they can run over the fish floor that is a motion sensor . They often have a different display downstairs that changes frequently. They have a massive collection of birds and eggs. A dinosaur room. Can't believe that's it's free entry as we'll.

“VISIT!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The Dorman Museum is great for learning about all sorts of things and for a free Museum you cant fall off! Unfortunatly when I visited last year there were rumours of the place being closed due to lack of visitors! I hope that this is not the case and we can keep it open :)
