    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 »

  • Was looking forward to an educational and interesting afternoon but found the museum very disappointing when compared to FREE museums such as the Imperial War Museum and Leeds Armoury Museum. No clear "route" through the museum, no guides in any room and some rooms closed off, however we still had to pay full price. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Will not be returning or recommending.
  • Great little museum in Newark. To be honest all the time I'm in Newark didn't know it was there. Staff friendly and great little place to go to learn about the history in Newark. Parking is nearby in public car park, otherwise other car parks in different parts of the town.
  • Great Exhibitions with many interactive and films with enough settings. Been 3 times since September and always new things to see and this time could have been there nearly all day. Good information desk and excellent volunteers. Theatre cafe within building is good for refreshment breaks.
  • Well presented. Static exhibitions supported by video presentations and information boards. Well worth a couple of hours
  • Fascinating museum. Enjoyed the exhibitions on surgery and T. E. Lawrence particularly.
