Great way to get away from the shopping crowds

Great fun, the best £2.50 we've spent in a long time! Lots of memories - we relived our childhood. The caves were fascinating.

Gives you a little theatre of history in old Nottingham. Interesting location at the foot of the castle. Shows some of the beat of British in a true traditional style. Friendly staff eager to tell you more and share the knowledge

Staff very friendly. Nice to go somewhere where you can open draws, touch things and play games. (We had an hellarious game of snakes and ladders and draughts). They also get it just right when explaining about the history of the time period. We have been to quite a few and although small is definately in our top three.

A massive step back in time to see what domestic life was like back in the mid 20th century. Some really cool stuff there, even if some of the things on displayed I'd played with as a kid.

Went here as the castle had just closed it's gates, so glad we did! A great visit with enthusiastic and knowledgable guides and lots to see. Will be revisiting and would definitely recommend.

I loved this museum which takes you back in time with an excellent collection of objects and a recollection of how people lived back in time (WWII).

Arrived at the end of the Castle cave tour to have a free look around. This is a fascinating place with lots of local history to absorb and engaging guides ready to relate additional facts. Well worth a visit.

Lovely little museum, cost £2.50 to get in (bargain). Took 9 year old son and he had a Explore and Drawer booklet to take round and complete. Rooms set out like Victorian Era rooms/ Shops etc and very educational. Also goes through some caves. Victorian school room next door and son tried his hand at some Maths and Writing on... More

Organised for a group of 14 prior to opening hours. Introductory talk by custodian on duty. Took over an hour for seniors to get round all exhibits. Lots of trips down Memory Lanes. Imagine this is a useful resource for school teachers. Do check opening hours..Toilets on site key with custodian.

Just loved the place -- so much to see -- the old building itself is a gen from the past. Maybe necessary to phone to check that it is open during your anticipated visiting time
