Museum opens 20 July
The museum site is now fully open with the exception of the air raid shelter which remains closed. You can access the museum and the cafe from Load Street and Queen Elizabeth II Jubliee Gardens between 10am and 4pm.
We have worked hard to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors and we are really looking forward to seeing you all again.
Please be aware all visitors are advised to wear face coverings unless you are exempt from wearing them. Thank you for your co-operation during these challenging times.
The Bewdley Museum Team
A hidden gem in the heart of Bewdley
The museum is set in the heart of the beautiful riverside market town of Bewdley, rich in Georgian heritage. On the edge of the historic Wyre Forest, Bewdley offers an ideal starting point for many scenic walks and easy access to local attractions such as Severn Valley Railway and West Midlands Safari Park.
Visit us and take a look back in time, not only into the history of our Georgian town but also the surrounding Wyre Forest area.
The Garden Kitchen café and the Garden bar are the perfect places to relax and enjoy lunch or a treat within the museum.
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!
What's more, admission to our historic museum is free. We welcome our visitor's donations which enable us to continue to bring the heritage and culture of this area to everyone.
Visit our museum gift shop to choose from a range of locally produced gifts as a treat for yourself, friends and family. Choose from a wide range of museum souvenirs, gifts and resident artists' work; including pottery, jewellery and turned wood items.
The museum gift shop is located at the Load Street entrance to the museum and can also be accessed through the shambles from the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Gardens.
Your purchase is helping to support the museum’s ongoing work for our future generations.
