Brewhouse Yard Museum
The museum depicts the social history of Nottingham over the last 300 years. Housed in five 17th century cottages adjacent to the famous 'Trip to Jerusalem' public house. Brewhouse Yard once contained a thriving community of 20 houses with, at its peak, a population of some 127 people.

 Today the surviving buildings house the museum and contain a mixture of reconstructed room and shop settings, and gallery displays. Here you can experience being in a Victorian home, see inside a child’s bedroom, root through the cupboards in the kitchen and pump water.

 The numerous shops throughout the museum include an Edwardian grocery shop and a Victorian chemist's. A 1920s shopping experience is recreated in a row of shops including a barbershop, pawn shop, ironmongers, doctors, cobblers and music shop. 

The gallery displays show objects that were made or used by people in Nottingham. 'In Search of Brewhouse Yard', our newest gallery, tells the history of the area, through sight, touch and sound. In addition, the ever-changing Community Showcase gallery provides an opportunity for local groups, societies and individuals to display material they have produced, collected or researched. You can also see the unusual rock-cut caves at the rear of the buildings that were converted for use as air raid shelters during the Second World War.

Brewhouse Yard Collections The History and Archaeology Team curate a wide variety of collections displayed in a number of sites within the museum service. 

These collections include Community History: The history of the Nottingham Community History collection goes back to the opening of the Castle Museum in 1878. The collection is a unique and fascinating one, very useful for illuminating the rich and varied history of Nottingham and its people on many different levels. 

Local people have been very generous with their gifts of information, books and objects to help record the history of the Nottingham area. Our aims are to record, acquire and interpret material relating to Nottingham and its peoples from 1600 to the present day, working in conjunction with other curatorial colleagues in Nottingham Museums.

Please note that the Museum is not open Monday-Thursday.
