Carlisle is a city with a rich history with historic sites like Carlisle Castle and and Hadrian's Wall nearby. 

Here at the News & Star we thought that we'd take a look at a place that helps to bring all of that history to life and is a beloved place for the people of Carlisle. 

Tullie House is a museum and art gallery in the city centre which is a very popular place for residents and visitors to enjoy. 

We've collected together some information about Tullie House and pictures illustrating what has happened at the museum in the years that it has been open. 

The museum houses a number of attractions including art, history and science related exhibits. 

The museum mixes together lots of interesting bits from over the years and the 'old' Tullie House is a Grade I listed Jacobean building. 

In the newer section there are lots of activities to actively engage both adults and the younger generations. 

Most of the exhibitions are temporary and change over time to keep it exciting for those who may make regular returns. 

Some of the current popular attractions explain the history of the Romans who had strong links to Carlisle and the surrounding areas. 

There is also an attraction showing the animals that have lived in Eden valley over many years. 

A spokesperson from Tullie House described the museum as: "Set in attractive and well-planted gardens, Old Tullie House (1689) still retains its beautiful Jacobean facade. Inside there is an impressive Jacobean staircase and fireplace. The wood-panelled first floor room shows Pre-Raphaelite art and Arts & Crafts items.

"The award-winning family-friendly restaurant serves a variety of snacks and meals, while the Tullie House gift shop is the perfect place to find unique gifts and souvenirs, featuring locally crafted goods.

"Tullie House is the perfect setting for weddings. The Victorian Theatre with its impressive bridal entrance has tiered seating for 100. For those looking for a more intimate wedding, the Morning Room, overlooking the Abbey Street gardens, can accommodate a wedding party of up to 30."
