Meet Father Christmas at the Museum - Now Taking Bookings!

The festive magic is on its way to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery this December, where Father Christmas will be visiting Shrewsbury to meet families in his traditional museum workshop. The elves will meet you and your family, guide you along the flagstones, through the archway to begin your climb up the original sweeping staircase.

Children are welcome to post a letter to Father Christmas – look out for our post box on your journey. A cheerful Elf guide will lead you through to a wonderous workshop, crammed full of history and magic, to meet Father Christmas himself! Tell him your Christmas dreams and wishes and receive an early gift.

Keep the magic alive as you follow the Christmas museum trail, exploring our fascinating galleries and try your hand at some of the free festive craft activities.

You can browse the thoughtful and indulgent gifts, books, and pocket-money treats in our museum gift shop.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
