There really isnt that much there. But its right in the centre of town and good to go round for 30 mins when you are there. Took 3 year old who was facinated by the dinosaurs. It's free and what they do have there is very interesting.

We went specifically to the Museum to see the Sheldon Tapestry but loved the whole thing. It is quite small but manages to cram in lots of interesting exhibits, from dinosaurs to early man to Saxon and later and then the last section is about wildlife. There is a fab little beehive where you can see the bees working, and... More

We come from the Lyme Regis area and thought we had seen most fossils. Yet we were so pleased to see some totally new ones, really well displayed, at Warwick Museum. We spent quite a time looking at Plesiosaurs, and loved the very large fossilised one hanging in the corner. As well as loving the wildlife display in the museum,... More

A well set up small museum for all age groups. There is enough to interest adults as quite a few exhibits and interactive items for children. I was glad to see the old bear still in place upstairs; I had childhood memories of visiting in the 1960's and was quite surprised he was still there! Very friendly and helpful staff

This small museum can be enjoyed for free, after having passed through the local marketplace. It focuses on the history of Warwickshire (and the now famous Horde), on natural history and animals. Interesting, though not famous.

Took my daughter here so we could look at the fossils as she is really into dinosaurs. She really enjoyed looking at the fossils and we spent some time on the ground floor examining them all. We spent less time on the first floor, as there was less to interest her, though I did get her a little bit interested... More

I visited here during the May half term. The museum is very well situated in the middle of Warwick, and has a great selection of exhibits from Roman artefacts to fossils. I particularly liked the amazing and huge Sheldon tapestry of Warwickshire, showing all the old place names . There's lots of things to interest children here, but as the... More

A quick wander of the streets to refresh the memory and we came across this little gem. A museum dedicated to the history of Warwickshire. We peered in through the doors before committing to entering but this doesn't give much away, then we see the "Free Admission" sign and ventured in. Bursting at the seams with natural history, taxidermy is... More
