Clifton Park Museum (Rotherham) ... Museum is a day out with a difference! One of the most modern and user-friendly Museums in the country, the two time nominated Museum of the year features famous exhibits such as Nelson the Lion and the breath-taking Rhinoceros Vase, the first ever porcelain vase cast in one piece!
Newest Review: ... how it is in person, this is not a museum which is especially child friendly in my opinion and one I wasn't especially enthralled by, my kids certainly weren't.

Rather than being given opportunities to learn, be interested etc they are given diversions like play areas, that's ... more

There are various facilties which make the visit easier and more pleasant including the new Granary Café opened in January 2008 The menu includes light lunches, afternoon teas, refreshments and daily specials. There are toilets, baby changing facilities, a gift shop full of the usual stuff, and car parking on site at cost.

Clifton Park museum is located on the fringe of Rotherham town centre. The museum is housed in Clifton House, a Grade 11 listed building dating from 1793. This house was designed by John Carr, a prominent architect of that time and it was the family home of the Walker family. The original occupier was Joshua Walker and his wife. Joshua's father had made his fortune in the local steel industry. Following Joshua's death this house was passed through various generations of his family and remained in their possession for almost 200 years. Clifton House stood in 70 acres of grounds and the majority of this land came into the ownership of Rotherham Borough Council ... Read the complete review

Many people won't even be aware it exists; some intrusive room guides
