Fascinating period artifacts, engrossing interactive displays combined with all the other things you associate with a great museum (clean, simple to follow layout, well stocked gift shop etc). Most importantly however was the friendly staff- especially the gentleman (John) in charge of helping visitors in the main exhibit- that really made my visit worthwhile! Also note that your ticket price doesn't just cover the admission of the centre. Housed in the same period-buildings are also the Newark museum and a exhibition hall which seemed to usually house a display of some sort. In addition the museum is part of the greater civil war trail in Newark and I'd honestly recommend starting at the museum first as it gives you a greater appreciation of the role Newark played during the conflict.
Helpful and friendly staff. Enjoyed the Shifting Sands exhibition October 2016
Very interesting place to go to. There lost of think to see.
Absolutely fantastically done, designed for both kids and adults to enjoy, the interactive exhibits are amazing, videos absolutely brilliant and the general exhibits available to the public are of incredible quality, small enough to be easily done in 2-3 hours yet keeping the visitor enthralled for those hours.
A small gem in the town, lots of interesting content about the English Civil War and a few other periods. Well worth a visit if in the area :)
