Wonderful local museum
mudcow, Northumberland, UK
This is a really lovely local museum, it's rather small and cosy but clearly well researched and presented well. There's plenty of different activities and approaches to keep the little ones interested whilst also presenting a reasonable depth of information for older children or adults. The section exploring the close links between the town and the nearby RAF station at Boulmer are particularly good. The temporary exhibitions are generally good with the recent illustrations of Harry Potter exhibition being of a particularly high standard.

A fascinating and really interesting journey back in time for a couple with strong links to alnwick and Northumberland thank u
A charming museum
This very interesting, well laid out museum was a delight to visit.and the entrance fee was extremely reasonable. Lots of local history and information. Would certainly recommend a visit.
Local museum - worth a visit
We popped in and were made very welcome by the enthusiastic staff. The museum is well laid out and has some very interesting content about Alnwick and Northumberland. There are lots of artefacts and photographs of Alnwick from the past, plus loads of things to do for younger visitors. There was an excellent exhibition on upstairs about archaeology, especially good for children. Well worth a visit and very good value for money (compared with other local attractions!).
Small museum of Local life
Barbara M, Stafford, United Kingdom
Set in an old church over three floors. A museum created by local enthusiast's and well worth the small entrance fee. Really interesting exhibits. Unlike so many museums this one doesn't leave you feeling exhausted by to much information..
