In out the rain.

This is a good hands on place for children. As a pair of seniors, we didn't feel there was a great deal to see. Staff very nice though.

After you’ve been to the castle you should cross the road and visit this museum. It is £4 for adults and has 3 different areas to see. Alnwick and its history, coal mining in Northumberland and finally a look at the last 60 years including many of the games we played as children. Really enjoyable visit.

Rainy day in Alnwick....

Lucy C,
A delightful small museum with something for the whole family! On a rainy day in Alnwick it was a welcome distraction. Lots of interesting local history, suitable for children with lots of interactive displays. And very friendly and welcoming staff!

Well worth a visit!

This museum is well worth a visit if you're in Alnwick - and it's very reasonably priced. It's not a huge museum so there's no overkill re the information on hand. It's all extremely well laid out [in a lovely old church] and there are some fascinating insights into life in the past in Alnwick - some wonderful old photos too. So, once you've visited the castle, walk down the road and look over the museum - and afterwards nip next door for coffee & cookie (the cookie's free with the receipt from the museum!).

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.
