The Museum of Worcester is an independent registered charity and nestles in the heart of historic Worcester within easy walking distance of the Cathedral, the Royal Worcester Porcelain Works and the Commandery Civil War Centre.

The imaginative use of room settings, shop fronts and period scenes transport the visitor on a journey from 1751, when shapes and patterns were copied from the Far East for the homes of the very rich, to the contrasting Victorian era where deep colours, extravagant exhibition pieces and works of breathtaking craftsmanship fill the show cases.

A wealth of archive material provides a backdrop of historical information and detail throughout and the journey ends in the Twentieth Century where changing life styles demanded new ranges of tableware and designers tested production to its limits. With a lively programme of exhibitions, events and guided tours the museum is a must for visitors.
