  • A credit to Carlisle, always something really good to see. Amusements exhibition really excellent. Our favourite, no matter how many times we see it, is the Roman exhibition. I love the railway carriages because they bring back my youth. The whole of Tullie House is well worth spending a whole day. The cafe do delicious scones. Staff really helpful and nice. Excellent day out. Thank you.
  • Enjoyed visit very much. Lovely to see Driggsby having last seen her remains on Drigg Beach in 2014 (sadly) we had always wondered what her exhibit would be like and the team at Tullie House couldn't have done a better job in restoring her. Amazing. Museum staff were all very friendly and informative. There is also a nice informal restaurant on site for refreshments before or after your visit.
