Excellent use of a small space

Jenni303, Brough, United Kingdom
We were drawn to this because of the Harry Potter illustration exhibition but actually the whole museum was very well thought out - great use of space and very interesting (even for someone not from Alnwick!) Well done!

Good for quick visit

We travelled to Alnwick especially to visit the museum as my children love Harry Potter. We spent about one hour in there which was looking enough to have fun trying on the outfits and pushing for silly photos. The illustrations were fascinating and my children were old enough to appreciate them. Staff were super friendly. Only downside was the price, at £4 per adult and £3 per child it was an expensive hour for quite a big family.

Harry Potter exhibition must see!

Well put together exhibition and is it outstanding to see such I high profile exhibition in an intimate space! Amazing family entertainment as well! Must see and great value!

Illustrating Harry Potter - excellent exhibition

triathlonjoe, Northumberland
An excellent, engaging and interactive exhibition. Took my 2 children aged 5 (with whom I have read the first illustrated book) and 3. Both loved dressing up (& dressing me up), loved the images, displays and interactive sections. It's easily big enough to entertain for an hour or 2 and super value for money.

Lovely little museum

Called in whilst exploring the town. Lovely little place that was once a church. Good backstory about the history of the town, with an interesting Harry Potter exhibition. I particularly enjoyed the film by the illustrator explaining where he got inspiration for his creations in the films. Staff helpful and kind, this is a little gem tucked away down by the side of the castle.
