  • Well worth a visit and the walk up from the town to get to it. The house itself is historic, the oldest part dating from the early 1500s. Various interesting displays inside and helpful friendly staff...  more »
  • Tucked away behind the church. Tudor history mixed with local interest exhibitions. Good for children as there is lots to look at. Friendly staff. Very nice visit  more »

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my visit today. I went with my 3 year old granddaughter who loved the 'rat trail' and it made it very interactive and more enjoyable for us both. Interesting exhibits
  • Absolutely fabulous. My 3 children and I found this absolute gem after following the trial from the TIC in Bakewell. We arrived at 3.50 and the museum closed at 4. A generous volunteer brought out lollies for the children as they could not let us in so late. We returned the next day and toured the museum which was fantastic. I have a 9 year old the twin 4 year olds. All 3 enjoyed the rat trail and looking at the artifacts. A superbly child friendly museum, the staff were absolutely lovely. An absolute must for anyone visiting Bakewell.
