A hidden gem

Carris C,
For as little as £3 each (for student tickets). My partner and I were greeted by smiling volunteers who were very informative about where everything is located. The kids got a bear hunt that was hidden throughout the museum (which admittedly I did participate in). The museum takes you through the history of Alnwick. It had interactive activities for young ines as well and interesting boards bout each item. The displays were incredible. I had an amazing time learning about Alnwick and the staff were all amazing. My favourite was learning about the mines in Alnwick though the display as that is an area of interest for me. Would 100% recommend!

Hidden treasure

Excellent place to take an under five. Although quite small there is so much to do and so much for them to get involved with. The older ones enjoyed the teddy bear hunt and it was a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours

Very hands on

Fab toy exhibition for kids. Lots of things for them to play with and dress up (all toys worked as well). My 4 and 6 year olds loved it. Lots of things for them to do in the rest of the museum too. Was a bit dubious about paying to go in but very glad we did.

Great place to visit with kids

Zelda G,
The toy exhibition upstairs was great, loads of stuff to play with and for grown ups to reminisce 🙂
