Good labelling helped with the old tools etc, There is a... More

This is a special little place. Walking in to the Tourist Bureau you never would guess what delights away you further in the building. It has a bit of everything about Evesham - military history, social history and every nook and cranny is filled with relics of Evesham's residents. Don't go into the Tourist Bureau without visiting this Heritage Centre.... More

Just a review for the Tourist Information Centre as we just popped in to get some local information as it was our first time in the area. very helpful staff and found lots of leaflets with things to do. The building is very interesting and if we had more time we would have visited the heritage centre.

We thought we would need around an hour to visit this museum, luckily we had longer available - we ended up staying over 2 hours ! This museum is a little gem, the staff are very welcoming but leave you to enjoy the museum at your own pace. There are numerous artifacts and plenty of information to read, housed in... More

What a precious, small and well kept 14th Century building, full of historical artifacts and history. Beautiful gardens too! You'll definitely need at least 2 hours to take it all in. My sisters and I will have to come back again to visit. Many wonderful places around "The Almonry Heritage Centre" to see.

If you're a social history buff this authentic 14th century building, stuffed full of details about life in this particular building & in Evesham over the years will have you fascinated. It's eclectic nature is appealing. Loved the little garden out the back where you can get great photos of the building. It's crammed & a little dusty - but... More

We found it by accident when visiting the churches and remains of the abbey. The building isn't huge, but it's packed with fascinating exhibits from all sectors of life. Simon de Montfort is there of course, but so much more. What's especially nice is that it isn't twee in any way and you get right in among the exhibits. It's... More

A lovely little museum crammed with displays and items that details the town's history, in a beautiful building that's over 600 years old. May be in need of a bit of modernisation in terms of displays but don't let this distract you from what is a good all round museum both inside and out. Some items would benefit from a... More
