  • I love Tullie House. Especially good for roman artefacts and Cumbrian history. On a previous visit I had seen the Crosby Garrett helmet which was just stunning. The staff are very friendly and helpful...  more »
  • Being a local you dont often go to things on your own door step and you forget how good they are. The staff are very friendly and eager to help, there is a nice cafe and some good exhibitions. 
  • I heartily recommend this museum. All periods seem to be represented but Roman materials are every bit as fascinating as expected. Restaurant is comfortable and food is tasty.
