Warning: these are our planned opening hours; the actual ones depend on the availability of our volunteers, so it’s possible we’ll be closed on some of these days. If the front door is open and there’s a white board outside, we’re open!
Entry to the exhibitions is free, but all our running costs are funded by your kind donations
You are welcome to spend time in the wonderful unspoiled seventeenth century building that is Tewkesbury Museum. Discover Tewkesbury’s rich and diverse history through a collection which ranges from Roman remains through to wartime austerity. Learn about notable Tewkesbury people like Antarctic explorer Raymond Priestley. Study the magnificent diorama of the Battle of Tewkesbury and the unique fairground model.
The building itself is a time capsule. Restored by Abbey restorer Thomas Collins in the nineteenth century and donated to the town as a Museum by an ‘anonymous gentleman’ in the twentieth, it is unique, full of original features, eclectic and eccentric.
The Museum is very child-friendly, with activities to keep them absorbed for hours.
As a small independent museum we offer local knowledge, local research and a fascinating glimpse into times gone by.
We’re often open outside our core hours; it’s worth a look to see if we are open.
We also do our best to open for individuals or groups outside these hours, by special arrangement.
