The Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard is a delightful museum sited at the base of Castle Rock, a location that itself reveals much about Nottingham's social history. The Museum depicts the social history of Nottingham over the last 300 years and is adjacent to the famous 'Trip to Jerusalem' public house. Brewhouse Yard once contained a thriving community of 20 houses with a population of 127 people at its peak. Today the surviving buildings house the Museum and contain a mixture of reconstructed room and shop settings, and gallery displays including 'Toys' and 'Community Showcase', which highlights work by local groups or individuals. The Museum also includes the collection of local topography and portraiture, and cartography. Together with the collections held at the Local Studies Library and the Nottinghamshire Archives, this collection is a highly important resource for the study of Nottingham’s past and the local, natural and man-made environment.
