  • Great visit, helpful staff, very informative. Really enjoyed the talk in the Tudor room on Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the actor/historian was very good. Then a coffee in the little Cafe. Plenty to look at, kids enjoyed dressing in the armour and clothes. 😀
  • Very interesting place. Next door to Palace theatre. Parking over road at £1 50 for 2hours
  • Looked promising, but the set up is very jumbled, with various artefacts from different eras all shoved together. There was also a Lawrence of Arabia exhibition, that had nothing to do with the civil war. Very confusing! Wouldn't recommend. Building is lovely but I didn't learn a lot about the civil war, really. A clear path through exhibits is needed! Expensive for what's there.
  • A fascinating museum with enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. Plenty to see and a good café to keep you refreshed.
  • Fantastic place which offers something for everyone. Talks, performances and special exhibitions enhance the permanent collection. The centre is constantly changing so repeat visits are worthwhile.
