  • Would love to be more positive. We visited with our 9 year old grandson on a wet, chilly October day. Children's quiz available. Staff are friendly, informative and the lady on duty was good with children. Cafe is quick, clean and decent. Most exhibits are as dry as dust! I think they do their best at this small venue but more imaginative, colourful displays surely would engage visitors more.
  • Great museum with plenty of interesting exhibits about the history of human habitation in The Dales. Well worth a visit.
  • Very interesting insight into Dales life gone by. So many skills lost. Worth a visit.
  • Museum is fun and informative. Cafe really nice. Always a pleasure to drop in. No where near as busy as rest of Hawes!
  • Fantastic little museum, well worth a visit- don't miss the opportunity for a great coffee in the attached Bike / Coffee shop best coffee in Hawes
