  • Lovely museum and staff. Very interesting. Gallery is free and museum is only £3. Beautiful location too.
  • A nice little museum. Big enough to be interesting. Small enough to not get boring. SOME items have labels at nearly floor level. Not ideal, for the taller (6'3") visitor.
  • Lovely little museum. Great kids trail - our son lived finding the little playmobil characters.
  • Me and my baby went for a mooch around. It kept us both entertained for a good hour and the ladies on the front desk were wonderful.
  • Great local history museum in the centre of Uppermill. Although there are only two galleries downstairs and one up you get a very condensed history of the area in the space that is available. Your only going to be spending around an hour in here but it's well worth a visit. The only downside I found was as there is a charge to enter the museum this doesn't seem to be easy to find out much it will cost from the website and it didn't seem to be posted on the door or at the desk where you pay. This seems to be the standard with most museums now (even free ones seem not to state that it's free on the homepage most of the time). It's £3 adult & £2 concessionary and I believe that do a family ticket for about £6 so the cost is only nominal. Overall this is a great place visit with very helpful staff and fully accessible to the disabled on all levels.
