About Nottingham Castle Museum

This superb mansion containing Nottingham's museum and art gallery sits on a green and pleasant mound high above the city. It gives the boundless joy of magnificent interiors filled with priceless treasures and unrivalled views over the roof tops of the city's stunning skyline.

When built, Nottingham Castle was set to rival the great castle's of Windsor and London's magnificent Tower. The "hey-day" of the original Medieval castle was the period prior to the Civil War after which the original castle perished to be replaced in 17th century by the impressive mansion we see today.

In the many splendid rooms of Nottingham Museum and Art Gallery visitors can see one of the foremost collections of silver, glass, artefacts, armour, portraits and paintings to be found in the country. It also has a major collection of Wedgwood Jasperware bequeathed to the museum in 1892. Visitors to the museum can learn of Nottingham's rich social and industrial heritage, including its period as a great lace making centre and of the city's long and illustrious history.

This is truly a place for everyone. Beneath the building there is a myriad of manmade caves and tunnels to explore, some of these date back to the time when the original castle was built. There are dungeons and even a wine cellar, but beware, the descent is somewhat precarious and includes steep steps. For children there is a wonderful medieval playground adjacent to a covered picnic area. There is also a specially designed gallery for children where they can enjoy interactive displays and a variety of activities.

Throughout the year the museum offers a varied programme of changing exhibitions featuring the work of local and national artists, and there is art and craft from artist's of international repute.

For anyone visiting Nottingham, a tour of Nottingham Castle Museum is a must.
