Elgars Birthplace Museum Museums
Crown East Lane, Lower Broadheath
One of England's greatest composers, Sir Edward Elgar, was born on 2 June 1857, in this pretty country cottage near Worcester in the heart of England.
After his death in 1934, Elgar's daughter Carice set up a Museum here, as her father had wished. In 2000, the new Elgar Centre was added to the Museum, to display even more treasures from this wonderful collection.
Inside the Cottage, visit Elgar's study, with his gramophone, and his desk just as his wife Alice prepared it. See Victorian and Edwardian family photographs and mementoes, his books, cycling maps, golf clubs and microscope, and discover his many other hobbies. Trace his European and American travels.
