Worcester Museum was founded in 1833 by the members of the Worcestershire Natural History Society and claims to be one of the oldest regional museums in the Country. The collections were described as miscellaneous by one of the first curators and were originally shown in temporary rooms in Angel Street.

Worcester's principal art gallery and museum hosts a unique programme of contemporary art exhibitions, as well as housing a historic picture collection and an intriguing selection of objects ranging from a 19th century chemist's shop to the wonderful Worcester sauce machine.

The Art Galllery runs a programme of temporary exhibitions in these spaces which aim to encompass visual arts, craft, photography, live art, film, video and new media. The gallery also runs an enjoyable programme of workshops, children's holiday activities, Big Art Family workshops, artist led events and lectures. . . . . . And after all that, our award winning Balcony Cafe is just the place for some light refreshments or a meal!.
