Fantastic place. We all enjoyed our visit. The staff were really helpful and offered lots of background information. 8 yr old enjoyed the quiz as he went round. Especially liked the games in the garden. (Nice weather!). Would highly recommend.

Great place, informative, children loved the immersive atmosphere as did we. Had all the Covid19 precautions in place. Will definitely go again to see and hear about the history of Lancaster's judges.

We found this impressive building whilst strolling round Lancaster- and what a find!

An extremely interesting visit of life as a Judge in days gone by. There are 3 floors - the top floor being a childhood museum with some toys we remembered as kids- there was also an interesting display of the history of Gillow furniture.

There were staff in a number of rooms in period dress - they were all interesting to chat to and obviously loved what they were doing.

£1.50 entrance fee - 75p for us as OAPs - what a bargain for such a great place!

Obviously, it was quiet during the current pandemic - but, when things get back to some form of normality, please go and support this lovely museum.

Preserved as it was when in use for the visiting judges - superb furniture and information on Waring and Gillow, local furniture makers. Excellent childhood museum on the upper floor.
