An amazing collection of memorabilia, displayed as shop windows. Chemist, hardware, toys, shoes, radio, hairdressers etc. Something for everyone. Friendly helpful staff. Local car park opposite, one flight of stairs. Has disabled loo.

An excellent museum to visit. Really well presented. It's amazing that Dennis Norton has collected all these things over the years and has exhibited them in such a fantastic way. Very friendly staff with a lot of knowledge about the collection and Bromsgrove.

a real treat on a rainy day: the museum is a fascinating mix of all things Bromsgrove, and very informative around the Bromsgrove Guild, nailmaking, and salt. My favourite thing, though, is the shopfronts - beautifully done and with some great artifacts. The gramophone shop...More
