The Quiet Hour at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery

We are pleased to offer The Quiet Hour from 11.00-12.00 on the last Sunday of the month.

Visitors can expect:

  • A quieter time when we typically experience fewer visitors*
  • Audio elements around the galleries to be turned off/down low
  • A quiet room to be available (when possible, please enquire prior to your visit).

Come and enjoy a moment of calm and reflection as you browse the Shropshire collection.

At certain times of the year, pre-booked special events may be scheduled, which require the quiet hour to be changed to the next available date.

"🏰✨ 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?
