Hidden gem

We hadn't noticed this museum on our last visit, but we were glad we called in. There is lots to see in well laid out displays over three floors and there are also things to keep children amused. Well worth a visit.

Not quite as informative as I thought

I love a good local museum. This one is not among the best because it's local history sections are not as detailed as they could be. For example, the story of Alnwick's town walls is given one line, and the water pumps around the town are not even mentioned at all. But I did enjoy the current special exhibition

A hidden gem

Museum housed in an unused Church building in the shadow of the castle......very interesting displays...clear captions..recreating schoolroom.....miner,s home..(bath time)...printing workshop etc A photographic exhibition on the top flloor, not to be missed, showing "extraordinary things" with heartwarming captions. Lift available for disabled visitors

Enjoyable hour or so,

Ian M,
This is quite a small museum but gives a really interesting history of the town and region from pre-history up to the present. Well laid out and easy to follow the timeline. It won't occupy a full day but well worth a visit to get acquainted with the history of the region.

Harry Potter

I really looked forward to seeing the Harry Potter exhibition and was really disappointed. The rest of the museum was disappointing also, not worth the money.

Bailiffgate Museum replied: So sorry to hear you were disappointed Christine. We try to have something to interest everyone, and the Harry Potter special exhibition was hugely popular overall - our biggest attendances ever. Keep an eye on our website occasionally, and if you see any special exhibition that catches your eye, come again and mention my name for a free entry.
