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 time. It's got recreations of old shop fronts, which I always love in a small... More

Lovely to be able to walk around all three floors and see lots of old things to remind me of my grandparents etc! Reasonably priced at £2.50 and great to be able to see the caves at the back of ordinary houses, such an unusual place.

Absolutely amazing to visit this after the disappointment of the art gallery calling itself a castle!!! My kids were gutted until we came into this little gem of a museum x thankyou for putting a smile back on their faces :-) VERY WORTH A VISIT......EDUCATIONAL AND INTERESTING X One slight negative point....it's not open the same times as the castle...

Very informative and enjoyable museum for little money. Great thing to do in Nottingham, friendly staff and would recommend. Lots of history about Nottingham as well as some more information on the caves, Victorian life and even a WW2 shelter! Good for families too.

The "castle" didn't appeal - seemed a lot of money for what is really just an art gallery. This place, on the other hand, for just £2.50 for adults is absolutely brilliant. The museum is housed in a row of houses built around 1700 with a separate school room. The museum gives you a taste of life in earlier times... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Brewhouse Yard. I am so pleased you enjoyed it. We are very proud of our cook in the kitchen.

Visited here today with my daughter and 6 year old granddaughter. So many interesting things to see. Really enjoyed the olde time shops and rooms set up with authentic period pieces. The staff were very helpful and enthusiastic about the museum. Entry fee is included with Castle entrance fee, but may be purchased separately. One word of warning. Although no... More

We were welcomed by such lovely staff who have a real enthusiasm for this place, it was a complete surprise that these displays were so well done, excellent way of displaying and almost walking through time. Would thoroughly recommend this place not just an add on to the Castle ticket, it is a destination in its own right. Well done... More

A really interesting museum which represents the social history of Nottingham. It's mostly Victorian and you get to see inside a child's bedroom and look though the kitchen cupboards. There is a little lane of shops from the 1920's including a chemist, doctors and grocery shop. Also a gallery which shows the history from the local area, not being from... More
