Manageable Slices of History in an Architecturally Interesting Building
Holly W, Minneapolis, Minnesota
A variety of topics and exhibits to entertain a range of ages. Great historic photos and opportunities for taking some yourself. This museum is a good complement to the antiquity and pomp of Alnwick Castle as it provides more of a look at everyday life. Enjoyed the special fashion exhibit (with chances to try on garments!), as well as listening in to the dialect conversation over the telephone by the "coal mine." We saved money by buying our tickets in advance at the Tourist Info Office.

Visited to see 100 years of fashion exhibition. Great to be able to get up close to the exhibits. Very interesting to compare photos of fashion through the years to see what changes and what just keeps coming back - shoe styles in particular. The history of Alnwick rooms were very interesting too.
A hidden gem of a museum
My 9 and 12 year old children were thoroughly engaged with age appropriate activities every step of the way while we explored the permanent features on the ground floor and lower level. I’ve never seen a museum that can incorporate inter-generational activities so well. The 100 Years of Fashion exhibit is well worth the time. I would recommend at least 1-2 hours to get the most out of the museum. A definite YES on your next visit to Alnwick. Conveniently located on the street opposite Alnwick Castle Barbican. Pop into St Michael’s afterwards and then walk through Pottergate back into the town center.
100 years of Fashion
Barbara P, NorthEast
The Bailiffgate Museum in Alnwick has a wonderful display of 100 years of fashion. A lot of the costumes are breathtakingly beautiful and it has been carefully arranged to inform and delight. The permanent display, on the ground floor, of the history of Alnwick is also excellent.

Visited the museum whilst staying in the area. From the start ,on walking through the door and meeting a very friendly receptionist it was clear that the volunteers had created something unique, Unlike many similar museums the visitor is not bombarded with masses of unrelated items and information. The displays were very carefully laid out and reflected the often very harsh life led by the local people, The fashion exhibition running at the time was superb with the staff having every confidence in the visitor treating it with great respect as the standard method of display behind glass or plastic had been dispensed with. All in all this was a very enjoyable visit and exceptional value for the nominal entrance fee.
