The Museum, celebrates the stories of Warwickshire and its people and has been refurbished thanks to a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and with the support of heritage, natural history and community groups from across the county. Explore our new galleries, discover treasures from Warwickshire’s collections and archives, and enjoy a tour of this historic, landmark building reimagined for our next generation of visitors. New accessible technology has been integrated into the museum and a themed approach that focuses on ‘Made Here, Getting Here and Living Here’ has been adopted. The refurbished gallery reflects the life and times of Warwickshire from ancient times to the present day. The visitors’ route starts on the ground floor, featuring Warwickshire’s most recent history, from the birth of the museum in 1836, to the present day. The exhibits include examples of locally manufactured items, collections that people have made, modern wildlife and iconic pieces from the Museum’s collections including the iconic Giant Irish Deer skeleton, a full-sized replica of the Wilmcote Plesiosaur skeleton and the Warwickshire Bear. There is also have a small cinema showing short films on local life and events. The first floor covers the period from the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons in Warwickshire to 1836 and elsewhere visitors will also explore Warwickshire’s Roman roots and even the unique remains of a Warwickshire dinosaur.

A very nicely laid out museum with friendly staff. Very much into geology and pre-history,with a stunning ichthyosaur and a giant Irish deer. Upstairs is a good exhibit of Warwick history,and a revolting (to me) taxidermy set up,which space could be much better utilised.

Visited this for the first time. For a small museum, it is well worth a visit. Much better than I expected. I spent a good 1 1/2 hours there.

Free admission, though donations accepted. Found the upstairs best, we were fascinated by the honey bees and learning about the fire if Warwick

Nice enough museum, but a little old fashioned in places, particularly the collection of stuffed animals, which seem a bit passe to me. However the prehistoric items are very interesting.

The museum was free and interesting but felt more suited to children than adults but worth a look around.
