This museum is far more interesting than many larger funded ones. It is really well set out with an enormous variety of displays. It is incredible how they have packed so much into a relatively small space. Each display has been well thought out and full of interesting objects, costumes etc. It is a must see place if in the...

This museum was recommended by the landlord of The Grantley Arms where we had called for morning coffee. It isn't very well sign posted and we had to ask for directions. What a fantastic place this is. So much to see and really well arranged. The volunteer staff are very enthusiastic and helpful. Especially liked the 1950's clothing and fabrics... More

This is an amazing museum, you don't need to be rich to go either. It's very well laid out, very interesting, and everyone who goes will enjoy it, a must see.

We visited Nidderdale Museum on our first day visiting Pateley Bridge. The museum is staffed by local volunteer's who clearly know and are very proud of their local area. And rightly so! I grew up in Yorkshire so there were many 'ahhh, I remember that / those moments' :). It was a lovely trip down memory lane. We have visited... More

I like museums anyway because I am a nostalgia fan. Great place looking back at how life was with various tradesmen scenes, clothes displays, shops etc. Very well kept, minimal charge to get in and friendly staff. Takes about an hour. Great for children and rainy days.

This small local museum is located several blocks from the main part of town. If you expect a modern curated museum, you would be disappointed. But there is a small town folksy feel to this museum. It was like I was in my great grandmothers attic and found all sort of curios. Going from one small room to another you... More

A hidden gem crammed full of fascinating items from days gone by and many old photos of the local community. I have visited twice and could go back many more times. The volunteers who work there are very informative and friendly.
