Bailiffgate Museum Alnwick
Devenar69, Glossop, United Kingdom
We are a group of 4 “young at heart” couples who have been coming upto Northumberland for a break after the New Year. We have often visited Alnwick but never been to the museum before. What an interesting and well organised place. We were welcomed most warmly by Frances, a volunteer, who was most informative and friendly. There was an interesting art exhibition on by Stella Vine. Not our cup of tea but,nonethless, different. The museum gives an account of the social life in and around the area,with many true and fascinating accounts from people who have lived there. The museum is spotlessly clean, great value for money and well worth a visit. You can even get a free cookie,when you order a coffee, from the Cookie Jar,( next door)a newly refurbished bijou hotel built on the site of the former convent.
A Must-See in Alnwick
It's always great to find a museum that combines historical events with daily life as people have lived it through the ages, This is one of the best I've seen,especially as the exhibits have come from volunteers. Well worth a visit whether you live nearby or,like me,don't know the area well. Highly recommended.
Insight into Alnwick's Past
My wife and ! spent a productive morning exploring the museum with one of the volunteers. We were in Alnwick to research relatives who once lived and worked in the town. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We went away with some useful information to support the family story. Well worth a visit if you are visiting the town and castle.
Lovely little museum
Great museum focusing on the social history of the area which I found really interesting, two lovely ladies on the entrance were a joy and you could tell they were really passionate about the museum and the work they do.
Bailiffgate Museum and Gallery
This Museum is well worth a visit and great value for money. It is in a good location, very close to the Castle. The artefacts are very interesting and provide clear factual information about the history of the North East. I enjoyed the WI Exhibition. The staff are helpful and friendly. After visiting the Museum it was lovely to visit the Cookie Jar next door.
