  • Not sure what I expected but it seems to be here just to say that Wakefield has a museum. Bits of it are interesting but it's very eclectic and disjointed. Not sure that I will visit again for quite a few years
  • Just a museum of a terrible city. They didn't have much to work with
  • A really nice little museum, lots for the kids to do from drawing, colouring, dressing up, playing with toys and lots to look at and explore. Very interactive for the kiddies.
  • Some really interesting local interests nested amongst the library
  • Small but it kept the kids entertained for several hours
