This building is not open every day. It contains exhibitions that tell visitors about the history of the house and of Worcester itself. It is only small and there is not much period furniture in the house but it is informative and does have a lovely original Tutor ceiling in one of the upstairs rooms.

This is solely run by volunteers and is free to enter, all they ask is a small donation towards upkeep. It has lots of information inside and is so interesting. I took my grandparents when they visited and they also really enjoyed it, although there are lots of stairs. the staff are lovely and they are always chatting to you... More

This attraction, run by volunteers, is wonderful. It is only open a few days in the week, so go online to check when. We were lucky to go when they had a visiting Henry VIII who gave a brilliant (as well as loud and v. funny) performance on why he had got through 6 wives! The other attendants were dressed... More

Staff were very friendly and although the museum is small, it's still very good and worth a visit. Free entry and just 20p for a children's quiz.

An interesting place to look around and I found the information detailed. The lady who showed us around the first room, which was an inn previously, was very helpful. Worth a visit.

This was a great place. Very friendly and welcoming. The lady on the door was great, knowledgeable and friendly. There is a tea room there if you wish to use before/after your tour around. The venue was free too - there is a donation box near the door. Can thoroughly recommend a visit here.

We were heading for the Tudor House owned by the National Trust that turned out to be a few doors further down the street! However, my husband was delighted by the Free Admission sign outside and we thought they must have an open day on. Glad we went in; delightful house with a historical perspective of Worcester.

Go visit if you like time gone by. The volunteers are full of knowledge, it costs nothing to go in, there's a little coffee shop, it's just a good property to go at that's not too large and rambling, full of history.

A very interesting free place to visit. What really made it was the volunteers that work here. So lively, knowledgeable and interesting and the ladies in the tea rooms were so lovely .
