TEWKESBURY MUSEUM CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

As a precaution against the spread of CORVID 19 virus amongst our volunteers and visitors, the museum is now closed to visitors until the emergency is over.

We regret having to do this, but safety must take priority.

All museum talks are also cancelled.

We will reopen as soon as we can, and look forward to welcoming our many visitors from the town and from the world.

If you need to contact us, please email info@tewkesburymuseum.org , or message us via Facebook, #Tewkesburymuseum

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.

museum-building-small-IMG_2060The 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. Because of its age the building is not disabled-friendly, though the staff are and will do everything they can to help.

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.

Allow at least an hour for a visit
