Most small town museums have bits of Roman pottery dug up locally, and exhibits relating to the history of their markets. There are a few of such items here, but also a large model of the battle of Tewkesbury and a collection of model fairground...More

A jumble of a building filled with a jumble of objects. Lots of really steep stairs and very difficult to get around. Visit to pass the time but don't make an effort to get there.

This is a small museum over three floors with steep stairs, not good if you have got wonky legs. But if you can get up them there are some interesting items. The museum is only open on certain days so check before you go. It...More
