“Interesting in places”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Obviously it's rope making so you have to be interested in the process so good if you are but not everyone's cup of tea. Nice gifts and something different

“Interesting but cheerless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We went to Hawes especially to visit the rope-makers and potentially to buy a gun dog lead. The museum was well thought out with plenty of explanatory notices. The workers were glum: never smiling or speaking. Perhaps we should have initiated the smiles and discourse. We left feeling informed but down spirited and didn't purchase a dog lead.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Stumbled upon this place by accident, and found it to be quite enjoyable, with free entry and free rope samples, this place is a great place to visit.

“A bit boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Well it was just so dull and there was nothing going on apart from looking at different ropes people have made which you can do in a rope shop or o pn the internet
