Great fun

a really great little museum on local history. Bags of fun for little ones, our 1 yr old had a whale of a time messing with everything.

Quirky, unusual, brilliant!

We keep meaning to pop in to the museum, whenever we're in the area, but always seem to run out of time. This time, I insisted, and I'm so pleased that we visited! The local history section, and interactive exhibits are fantastic for adults and kids alike, and we all particularly loved watching the old film footage, and the 'school room' dress-up section. Alnwick/Northumberland is such a fascinating part of the country, and a lot of the exhibits fitted in nicely with my daughter's school projects on The Romans, and Stone/Bronze/Iron Age. The mining experience downstairs is also fascinating for all ages, and 'hands on'. The Stella Vine exhibition was my favourite part of the visit, and we appreciated that there are plenty of child-friendly activities up there, as some of the works are bit much for little ones.

Fabulous exhibition and local history

Went here to see the Stella Vine exhibition which was upstairs but also went round the permanent local history display downstairs. Live locally but have not visited the museum for ages. Enjoyed this exhibition a lot and like the look of others coming up during the rest of the year - only £3 each for us to get in (concession) but now considering buying a Friends ticket.

Interesting museum

The Bailiffgate museum provides a lot of information about the history of Alnwick and surrounding area in a well laid out space. There are many items on display and there is also plenty of interactive and hands on things for children. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Personally the current art exhibition is not to my taste.

An unexpected surprise.

Michael P,
Spent a week in Alnwick in October. Did a lot of visiting local places and landmarks. Then we discovered this gem. A great place to visit and very interesting on a number of levels. History, Art, Local, displays and a great book/gift shop. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. (Volunteers)
