  • Really enjoyable, with something for everyone. If local history is your thing then we'll worth a visit. It's also free!
  • I have spent a lot of my childhood coming to visit the museum, it's always good fun and it has the addition of being in Rochester.
  • A lovely, fairly small (but not tiny) museum, free of charge, immaculately kept. We absolutely loved it. Wonderful staff who made my visit a great stop. Chock full of Rochester history from Dickens to the hulks. Absolutely one of the highlights of Rochester. Thank you!
  • Good displays including an interesting video on Charles Dickins describing his local inspirations for his books. (Most notably Great Expectations)
  • Lovely little musuem very friendly staff, they were running activitys for children on our visit
