  • I think this is officially called The Museum of Nottingham Life, but it's located on Brewhouse Yard, hence the confusion - on our visit Google Maps seemed to think it was two different museums! Anyway...  more »

  • Amazing variety of exhibits, looks small outside but is huge, good job they have a good system of arrows or you are unlikely to get out, if you wanted to. Allow plenty of time a lot of detail to absorb. Recreated rooms, shops, air raid shelter, real caves, and even historic playrooms with toys through the ages. All carefully annotated. Well worth a visit but careful of opening times, currently weekends due to shortage of volunteers. Free but they appreciate donations to keep this marvel open.
  • Worth a look in. Won't take long to see it all but interesting nonetheless.
  • Such an interesting place to go, they have a lot of history crammed into a small place.
  • What a wonderful , museum from top to bottom, the Anderson shelter was a special moment. Whils't my wife and I were in there, two local Nottingham Ladies were reminiscing about there experiences of living through the war in Nottingham, the one lady even reproduced the sound of a Lancaster bomber as she explained the noise they made to her friend , which flew over Nottingham on there way to Europe or back. The young gentleman on duty in the museum also gave us an excellent insight ,making the museum come to life as he talked to us about the various items on display, and even mentioned about his family's involvement in The sherwood Foresters Regiment during WW2. 10 out 10 for the museum.
