Overview

Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum is housed in an elegant Victorian building in the heart of Worcester. The beautiful interior is a warm and friendly place, with something for all the family to enjoy. Immerse yourself in the special exhibitions, events and activities throughout the year. The museum gallery has lots of amazing things to see including dinosaur footprints, Worcestershire Sauce archive and many more interesting objects from a real Roman mosaic to a Native American totem pole. Whilst you are here visit the engaging and interactive galleries dedicated to telling the story of the Worcestershire Regiment and the Worcestershire Yeomanry Cavalry and not forgetting the recreated Victorian Chemist Shop.

An awful lot to see and do at this excellent museum. It's accessible, with lots of different areas, with a particularly interesting local history section. Well worth a visit.

Why do we not know so many of our talented forebears. The current exhibition showing the work of the 19th C. watercolourist David Cox is superb. It is also free. It is running for another couple of months. Catch it while you can.
