Wonderful collection, the museum of Nottinghamshire Life. Series of roomd, shops etc recreated. Fascinating troglodyte air-raid shelter. What a pity you can't get in without buying a ticket for the rip-off castle!

Following the underground cave tour we were recommended to pay this museum a visit. What a gem! Lots to see - covering room settings, bygone toys, shop settings, air raid shelters etc etc Well worth a visit.

A super museum with so much to see for £2.50 per person. It is closing though, along with Nottingham Castle, at the end of March for at least 2 years for redevelopment so my advice would be to go while you still can! Lots of...More

It is an interesting history of Nottingham over about 300 years in some 17th century houses. It is next to The trip to Jerusalem pub. Lots to see and do inside an old school room with desks ect. Old toys and shops and bedrooms really...More

The brew house museum is an interesting collection of Nottingham related stuff mostly from the Victorian era (imagine a Victorian kitchen, Victorian shop interiors, Victorian toys and assorted knick knackery) but this is not the most interesting part of the museum. Through a door at...More
