Lovely museum and gallery
We visited Alnwick during the January off season and it was lovely and relaxing. The volunteer lady on the door was very helpful and explained the tour and various rooms. The exhibits are interesting, giving a great insight to Alnwick in days gone by from medieval to WW1, the coal mines and local celebrities! Lovely experience to visit and to learn more about the rich history from the area!
Excellent local history museum
Friendly staff, reasonable admittance (£4 adults) for current exhibition, Alnwick during the 1WWW.Don't be put off by the title, what Alnwick went through all towns in the UK also did. There are also exhibits telling the history of the Northumberland region with some interactive stuff for children.
Lovely little museum
We visited Bailiffgate on a very cold damp Sunday. It was a welcome respite from the weather. The lady on the door explained the tour and various rooms. She was really friendly and even offered to make us a cup of tea to warm us up! The exhibits are interesting, giving a great insight to Alnwick in days gone by. We found the Alnwick during WW1 fascinating. All in all a good way to spend an hour or so and totally accessible with lifts etc.
A real gem of a museum

Fabulous place to learn local Northumbrian history, ideal for all all ages. This is just a short walk from the castle so it's very easy to get to. Kids enjoyed their day!
