Overview

Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum is housed in an elegant Victorian building in the heart of Worcester. The beautiful interior is a warm and friendly place, with something for all the family to enjoy. Immerse yourself in the special exhibitions, events and activities throughout the year. The museum gallery has lots of amazing things to see including dinosaur footprints, Worcestershire Sauce archive and many more interesting objects from a real Roman mosaic to a Native American totem pole. Whilst you are here visit the engaging and interactive galleries dedicated to telling the story of the Worcestershire Regiment and the Worcestershire Yeomanry Cavalry and not forgetting the recreated Victorian Chemist Shop.

I visited with my daughter to see the costume display and have lunch. The food is freshly prepared and excellent value. It is a pleasant place to sit being quiet with the tables arranged around the balcony area.

A rather small gallery and museum, with a rather large amount of material on the local army regiment and its history. It's hard to be too harsh: this is a free facility and certainly the exhibits are well-presented, albeit somewhat limited. Much of the museum...More

An awful lot to see and do at this excellent museum. It's accessible, with lots of different areas, with a particularly interesting local history section. Well worth a visit.
