“Nice museum but a bit expensive”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

It is a small and delicate museum, but it is not worth the ticket value, the bonus point the collection of Charlotte Cory, really interesting and lovely pictures, I don't feel too much about the royal bath and I didn't think it was that small and just has one floor, did not see much but still paid a relative expensive ticket....................It is nice and charming, but not as much as I had wondered and a little expensive, really.....

“No value here!!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We made the mistake of visiting the Pump Rooms on our recent visit to Harrogate. There was very little value for the £3.50p entry fee. The couple of wells were covered up (as one would expect), plenty of period photographs on show and a few exhibits worthy of a glance. I was interested in some old carriages which I thought would make a nice photograph, as I was about to take a picture I was told firmly that photography was not permitted.
We departed after spending no longer than 20 minutes in the premises. Not recommended, save your money.

“mixed blessings”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

A charming old Edwardian Rotunda which must have been very busy in its day, that said it is a stretch to make the viewing last more than 30mins so quaint and interesting, and I suppose the jug of spa water makes one reel at the stench, and to think they used to bathe and drink the stuff! doesnt bare thinking about, it is placed well in the centre of the floral town of harrogate which is a delight to explore, and of course a visit to the historic "Bettys Tea Rooms" is an absolute must (if you can get in!) the quality of food is first rate as is the service and ambience, a definate, must place to visit.

“Nice little museum but over-priced”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

There is nothing wrong with this museum but it is precisely as described in my title - a 'nice little museum' ; as such it is over-priced, so unless you are passionately interested in the history of spas I would suggest thinking hard before visiting.
