We visited on a free entry day. Very interesting, we were there for 1 hour and read most of the information about each room.

I think this is officially called The Museum of Nottingham Life, but it's located on Brewhouse Yard, hence the confusion - on our visit Google Maps seemed to think it was two different museums! Anyway, it's very well worth a visit. There's so much to...More

Thoroughly interesting and enjoyable museum, actually would rate this higher than the castle. Well laid out and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it. Charming little museum depicting Nottingham life, particularly liked the little chemist shop.

Loved this museum, there's something here to interest everyone and staff are very helpful.Wish it was open more often. Feel the fee of £2.50 is too low. Suggest £5.

I'm glad you were able to come back with your castle ticket and enjoy Brewhouse. Sounds like you met our cook in the kitchen. More remarkable because our cook is registered blind and yet she is able to receive such praise. She is truest inspiational

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
