Worcestershire County Museum
Whether you are looking for a trip down memory lane, a chance to learn something new, a peaceful stroll through nature or just a nice cup of tea and a cake, Worcestershire County Museum has it all.
The County Museum, housed in the former home of the Bishops of Worcester, is a fascinating place to explore. In the museum galleries you can discover social history, toys through time, travel & transport and the intriguing story of Worcestershire’s past. Visitors can also see room sets such as the schoolroom and scullery, which are regularly brought to life by visiting schoolchildren and period rooms that focus on the Victorian and Civil War rooms.
The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions and exciting events throughout the year including family fun days, historic re-enactments, Christmas weekends, a Country Fair and a Festival of Transport.
A fantastic gift shop, café, picnic areas and nature reserve all add up to a great day out.
On certain days visitors to the museum can also see the grand State Rooms of Hartlebury Castle including the mediaeval Great Hall and Georgian Saloon, used by resident Bishops throughout the centuries (2012 dates – Wed, Sat and Sun, April-Sept).
Opening Times: Tues-Fri (10-5), weekends and Bank Holiday Mondays (11-5).
