The war museum part was very interesting and well put together and the art gallery is mainly modern art. Definitely worth visiting and the cafe looked really nice but we didn't have time to sample it.

As part of the festival we visited to see both quirky pottery and fashion in the thirties. Both interesting and well presented. Also looked around the normal military museum depicting the history of Worcester Regiments. Most enlightening for a newcomer to the area.

An excellent exhibition of the County's Regimental History, well laid out and thoughtfully told. The Paul Nash exhibition was also interesting. The other items of social history such as the Lea and Perrins story and the Natural History section togehter with some of the oil paintings were also worthy of note.

Museum struck me as very old fashioned and I rather liked it. Interesting display of both Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce (how could we live without it?)and also Vinegar... More

Went to the museum mainly to see the Paul Nash and David Prentice exhibition entitled Skylight and Landscape which I enjoyed very much and which was not too large for my partner who is not that keen on art galleries. The downstairs exhibition by the second year art student was even enjoyed by my partner and his daughter. The museum... More

We visited the art gallery and museum to see the Song of the Sea Exhibition about the St Ives School of marine and landscape artists which was worth a look. Knowing St Ives it was interesting to see how the artists had portrayed the area. The old dispensary was also an interesting exhibit. The museum shop was very good with... More
