Small but interesting local museum with well presented artefacts and helpful background information. Special displays to interest younger visitors. Enthusiastic docent at the door ready to provide additional information if needed. Note opening times as not open every day. A few ‘gifts’ available in the library which shares a building with the museum. Well worth planning a visit when nearby.

A very visual and hands on spacious museum relating to a very interesting town of Alcester with video presentations , good exhibits , and a museum guide who is full of interest and knowledge and is on call if you wish to ask any questions. It seemed perfect for all ages , especially children and the staff are helpful . There is also a lovely public libtary run by the local council authority which is open to everyone .

A simple one room museum, with displays showing various recovered Roman and other artefacts from the town's history. Works hardto create activities that will capture the interest of children. Of only passing interest foradults without children.

All six of us really enjoyed this Heritage Centre a lot. It’s free to get in and looked after by volunteers. Lots of Roman artefacts to look at and discuss between the six of us travelling together

If like me you were captivated by the history of Roman Britain from your school days you will find this small friendly and accessible museum in Alcester a real gem . With it's friendly staff the history of this small Roman settlement will be told on display are finds that have been unearthed over recent decades. It may not be a large museum but it is small and approachable and should keep anybody interested for an hour or so, please visit and support this local attraction.
