  • Although a lot to read, the museum allows smaller people with an interest in wars, soldiers and battles to have a look and not be overwhelmed. Dress up, small and manageable quiz trails and interactiv...  more »
  • I was truly delighted with the museum, mainly because there was a 3 room display about T.E Lawrence whom I had read much about whilst at school. There are a number of rooms, with interactive sections ...  more »
  • The entrance to the museum opens out into the visitor shop and the main desk. The exhibits are spread across 5 floors though in reality this is in total about 9 rooms and onky 2 of them are large ones...  more »

  • 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.
