I just paid this museum a short visit as I was passing, but would be worth a longer stay. Lots of detailed local history in several rooms over 2 floors, housed in an attractive building.

We were directed to Bruce Castle Museum by the library, hoping to find information about some of the iconic housing estates in Haringey (which we did). It was a great find: lots of info about life in Haringey during the wars, Roman finds, South's pottery,...More

Interesting displays and books. The museum is in a nice large park. Have an association with Tottenham /Harringay so it was good to have a look at various photos and artefacts from the past. The museum isn't very interactive but there are dressing up things...More

Popped into here today. The exhibits could be arranged chronologically better but I still enjoyed browsing the panels and glass cases. Lots of local history mementos on display in the first room that you walk into. The castle's history was laid out in another room,...More
