  • This is a wonderful museum to visit. However, Dogs not allowed,which can be difficult on one's own. They do supply fresh water at the door which is very thoughtful.

  • Having visited this museum periodically over the past 50 years, it appears to be a shadow of its former self - a little disappointing and uninspiring now. A few of the original exhibits still exist, but a lot of the rooms seem a bit empty, with little to engage with the younger visitors. There is scant evidence of any investment from the sale proceeds of the Egyptian artifact - possibly the only valuable asset in the collections. As this is currently the only museum open to the public, it does little to promote Northamoton's cultural heritage.

  • Great little museum (but bigger than you'd expect), got a bit of everything in it. Could easily spend an hour or two in there walking around.

  • Absolutely beautiful museum, shows most of Northamptons history in a piece of history, staff are friendly, is child friendly has interactive play areas for them

  • I went during the craft fair not a bad place for the history of northampton
