Ages: all ages
Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor
The Nottingham Castle is a magnificent 17th Century ducal mansion built on the site of the original Medieval Castle, with spectacular views across the city. A vibrant museum and art gallery housing collections of silver, glass, armour and paintings, plus fifteen centuries of Nottingham history which are brought to life through stories and interactive displays.
One of the museum's star attractions is the Felix Joseph collection of 18th century Wedgwood jasperware, bequeathed to the museum in 1892 and is one of the few Victorian assemblages of 18th century Wedgwood, in the world, to remain intact today. Joseph's collection consists of over 1,400 pieces.
The Threads gallery contains shoes, outfits, hats, masks, fabrics and unusual objects from around the world which demonstrate the connections between people from different times and places and their ingenious use of textiles.
The Exhibition Galleries play host to a lively programme of events and exhibitions, ranging from old masters to modern greats, and have just hosted some great modern British art as part of the British Art Show 6.
