Bewdley Museum was opened in 1972 and established by Stephen Quayle who wanted to share the exciting heritage of the town and show what an important part it played in the history of the region.

About this business

Opening times, reviews & more

Located in the historic butcher’s ‘shambles’ it tells the story of Bewdley and the Wyre Forest area.

The museum is set in the heart of the beautiful riverside market town of Bewdley, rich in Georgian heritage and remains a cultural centre for locals and visitors alike. The Museum welcomes a high volume of visitors each year and is free admission! As well as showcasing the local history through exhibitions and displays, we run a popular gift shop and Tourist Information Centre and deliver special events, weddings, and educational workshops.

Visitors can enjoy visual craft demonstrations; audio histories; hands on activities; imaginatively displayed artefacts; tactile displays and a sensory herb garden with water feature. You can even find out what it was like to be locked up in our town jails! The Garden Kitchen Café is situated on site and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy lunch or a treat within the museum.

The museum's opening hours are seasonal - please check here to see if they are open when you would like to visit.
