“Moore than meets the eye!”
Review of John Moore Museum

John Moore Museum
Ranked #4 of 25 things to do in Tewkesbury
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This is a countryside museum a stone's throw away from the abbey (it is part of a row of Tudor houses originally owned by the monks), and as such it is of average interest, however, your entrance fee also gives you access to a recreation of a Tudor shop and home a few doors away, and you can also wander round the pleasant gardens in the shadow of the abbey.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The history connected ith John Moore, the fascinating merchant house, and the unexpected Baptist Chapel all taught us more than we expected. Do not miss the beautiful Secret garden in the shadow of the Abbey.

Good little place which covers nature and local farming stories - including all about the author John Moore.

With this is included a visit to the Merchants House a few doors down which was also interesting and fascinating - especially seeing steps that were original and approx. 500 years old. Good to see how they lived in those days and the little secret garden was great.

The museum itself could of been a bit more interesting. If you hate taxidermy avoid this place. The visit to the Merchants cottage however was very interesting and gave a great insight into how a family from the Tudor time lived in such cramped conditions.

An excellent museum. I am not really into stuffed animals but the displays and accompanying information are of a high quality. I actually enjoyed The Merchant's House more. It has been restored to such a great extent that you can really understand/feel how it was as a 15th century shop and dwelling. Finally, our "visitor experience" was enhanced considerable by the staff on duty they were brilliant.
