Bewdley Museum is a popular tourist attraction set in 18th Century surroundings and provides a fascinating insight into the growth and trades of the town and the lives of its people. Explore the old Butcher’s Shambles, Brass Foundry, Saw Yard and Town Jails. Go underground in the World War II Air Raid Shelter. Learn about the rich history of the town and the Wyre Forest area through imaginative and interactive displays, workshops and special events. Traditional crafts are brought to life through daily demonstrations of ropes, clay pipes, basket weaving and brick making. The service promotes intellectual and cultural access to the Museum and its collections. The service offers an interesting and exciting education programme which includes a wide range of curricular based activities and resources for schools, the majority of which can be adapted for Special Needs and Gifted and Talented groups.

The section maximises opportunities by accessing external funding, partnership working, regeneration and working closely with the Friends of Bewdley Museum. The Museum holds full Museums, Libraries and Archives (MLA) Accreditation.

The Museum is open daily to visitors between April and October and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in November and December.
