A great place to visit for an hour or two. Our boys built a fort, dressed up in Roman toga and played noughts and Crosses with stones. There is an educational video to watch and various displays to look at.

This is a great little free museum with friendly staff and some very interesting things to look at. There's some great, interactive educational play for children (even the little ones). We parked for free which is in common with most of Alcester. Well done!
