The day I went, there were several folks standing outside knocking on the door. It was well past opening time, but I went away and came back an hour later. Still closed. One gentleman, still there, had come a long way to visit. The sign...More

This is a fascinating museum in a very old building full of interesting facts. There is also a secret garden and an old chapel still with its baptism pool. William Shakespeare's sisters are buried in the chapel grounds.

Just a hop and a skip from Tewkesbury's beautiful abbey, this museum is housed within a row of quaint 15th century cottages. My grandchildren, aged 2 and 5, were fascinated by the exhibits. First the stuffed animals, which they were encouraged to touch, and then...More

Visited the museum in small groups and were given a fantastic insight as to what life had been like to live there. It was very interactive, having a go at a hands on quiz and dressing up. Combined with visiting other sights in Tewkesbury it...More

Small, but well presented, John Moore Museum is a good attraction in Tewkesbury, with a variety of exhibits well presented.
