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

We tried to go there in the middle of summer when it should have been busy but it said it was closed as they had no staff, considering this is just below Nottingham castle this was quite bad.

It is with sadness that I read this review. Brewhouse yard museum is manned entirely by volunteers who give their time for no financial reward. It was unfortunate that on this one day in July 2016, the only occasion when when this has occurred since it has been run by volunteers, that due to a variety of reasons there was... More

On a wet weekend we looked for something to do on a Sunday afternoon and found this little gem of a museum. Entrance fee is only £2.50 each which reflects this is a small museum and only takes about 1.5 hours to visit. It was interesting to see how people lived in the early part of the 20th century. The...

A very nice museum, especially for children. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Located right next to the oldest pub in England and very near the castle and other visitor attractions. Worth your time!

Allow plenty of time, very absorbing detail from recreated rooms, through shops to caves and wartime recollections. Even a play room with range of old toys and games. The volunteers are very friendly and informative, but unfortunately a current shortage of them means this treasure is only open at weekends. Free but donations very welcome.

Great museum showing you about life in Nottingham and the UK over the centuries. Well laid out and easy to follow. Amazing walk through a few of the caves. Was included in castle entrance ticket but would pay extra to see. Don't miss it!

Brewhouse Yard was a great place to visit to experience life at the turn of the 19th Century below Nottingham Castle. The team there were very welcoming and informative. Laying the houses out in a series of different senarios gave a good impression of life there at that time. If you have an hour to spare in nottingham here is... More
