Worcestershire County Museum

Hartlebury Castle
DY11 7XZ

Hartlebury Castle has been home to the Bishops of Worcester for over a thousand years.

In the former servants' quarters of the North Wing a wide range of permanent exhibitions show the past lives of the county's inhabitants, from Roman times to the twentieth century.

Displays explore the wonders of Worcestershire, toys through time, social histroy and transport including a fantastic collection of horse drawn vehicles.

Room sets such as the Nursery, Scullery, Laundry and Schoolroom allow you to step inside the past.

Changing exhibitions and a busy events programme means there is always something new to see and do.

School groups are welcome to visit the museum and take part in the Victorian role-play sessions in the servants' quarters and schoolroom.

Please contact the museum for details of discounted admission charges. Evening and group visits by arrangement at reduced rates.
