The houses and caves are themselves a good visit but the volunteers made the exhibits alive. The shop was a super glimpse into pre supermarket days. The children's toys through the ages on first floor brought back many memories. The attic floor has shop Windows...More

Our visit was an "add on" with the visit to the Castle. It really should be the main attraction. Far more interesting and the staff are brilliant. After being disappointed at the Castle, this made our day. Can you remember, I had one of those,...More

I have rated it "poor" only because it only opens at weekends and we were there mid-week. Surely in the summer months this museum should be open?

Located under Nottingham Castle around the side of the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem Pub. Gives a great impression of life back in the day. Great value at £2.50 or it is free if you have already paid to tour the castle (keep your ticket)....More

What a smashing little museum. And just £2.50 entry! Hugely knowledgeable guides to remind you of a bygone era!

An interesting step back in time. Lots of things to see set out on 2 floors. We could remember a few of them too. Artifacts from all walks of life including the pharmacy, bootmaker, laundry, corner shop and hairdressers (some of which looked pretty dangerous!)....More

Had lunch in the nearby Trip to Jerusalem pub and wandered down here. Had a really lively time wandering around, and the staff were very helpful. It is bigger inside than it looks, and could have spent longer in here if we had allowed more...More
