“Memory Lane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

As a child-80 odd years ago-I was there with my parents. Interested to see if I could remember anything.
I liked all the exhibits and general history.

“very interesting exhibitions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Visited the pump room museum in Harrogate whilst staying in Knaresborough. Really interesting displays and sampled the 'salty waters' that are supposed to be very therapeutic for a variety of ailments. Unusual taste!!! Staff very knowledgeable and gave us lots of extra info.

“Informative.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Interesting little museum, passed an hour in there to escape the rain but enjoyed it! Would have been nice to be able to sample the waters but I think the Health and Safety people have stepped in which seems a shame.

“A very very expensive rip off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

This place is a rip off. Nothing in here you couldn't find elsewhere for free, in Harrogate. To get a flavour try the free tap at the side / back of the museum.
