We’re so proud of the history of our county, we’ve housed the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery in one of the finest buildings in the town.
Behind its grand Georgian façade, you’ll find historic interiors including an elegant Victorian Music Hall and a thirteenth century mansion filled with exhibitions that bring to life Shropshire’s rich and varied history.
Look out for golden Bronze Age discoveries, Roman and medieval artefacts, magnificent ceramics created when Shropshire was at heart of the Industrial Revolution, alongside paintings, silverware, costumes and geology that all reveal aspects of the county’s past.
Admission is free and you’re welcome to visit the shop, visitor information point and café whether you’re visiting the museum or not.
