We chose to go to this museum after the trip to the caves around the Castle, as it was free if showing the ticket used for the caves' trip. Very detailed reconstruction of a early 1920s cottage in Nottingham, with how a typical 1920s street in Nottingham wold have looked like and some toys and other objects from that period.... More

Having visited the castle we made our way down to the museum and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (admission is free with your castle tickets). The staff were really friendly and helpful and are a credit to the place. The caves are well worth seeing.

I haven't been here since the 80s and unfortunately my happy memories were not to be re-lived! Where did the original old bedroom and the great big bedsteads go? The caves used to be much more "rugged" and there was a great collection of helmets and gas masks etc. It's all just a bit too clinical now with lots of... More

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.

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.
