Museum of Nottingham Life

Five 17th century cottages transformed into a social history museum, reveal the everyday life of people from the past.

Following our successful HLF bid Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery  and the Museum of Nottingham Life will very soon begin a process of refurbishment. The redevelopment works will mean that the current education programme of facilitated sessions at the Castle and the Museum of Nottingham Life sites will be suspended from September 2017.

From September 2017 until March 2018 the Castle will remain open to the general public and teacher led school groups will still be able to visit. Please be aware that in this period archaeological works and other site preparations, possibly involving vehicle movement, will be happening on site and we will not necessarily be able to guarantee lunch spaces for teacher led groups.

Group visits can be booked at the Museum of Nottingham Life by calling 0115 8761400
