What our visitors say


Here are a small selection of independent reviews that have been posted on our Facebook and Trip Advisor pages


The museum is in a Grade 1 listed building, built centuries ago as a residence but which over the years had declined into various uses. It has been lovingly restored by local volunteers who formed a charity.
Quite often following restoration the problem is then what to do with the building.
Here it has been turned into a museum of local life. The displays are excellent with a variety of wall mounted as well as others. Plenty of information on local life and world war one.
Definitely worth a visit when in Settle.


Charming museum in Settle

This is an enchanting museum in the heart of Settle. It's located in The Folly, a building with a fascinating history of its own, and the rooms are full of local treasures. The highlights for me were the descriptions of rural life and the exhibition, by the Krafty Knitters, of Settle shop fronts, all depicted in colourful knitted designs. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the Folly Cafe next door must be the best cafe in the town.
