“Fab place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This museum is a great place to visit whether your young or old : ). The exhibits are always well presented , and staff are friendly .
The gifts shop has some nice things you can buy which are reasonable.
We really enjoyed the Invasion exhibit with various masks and clothing from films such as Star Wars and Predator :)
And the cafe has a nice range of dishes and light bites.
Also has a small play area for children.

Check out the adjacent Owl Centre.
Watch out for fun events in the grounds.

Summer fete was particularly good last year. Lots of different displays.

“Family Day Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Three generations of my family were together for the weekend and so decided to go to Kirkleatham Museum. Brief details on the website and one attraction was the art of John Mulholland along with the free entry! An old fashioned location with some great exhibits - the highlights being the Saxon burial finds from Street and the art of John Mulholland and a contemporary, whose name I cannot remember. A worthwhile find.
