Pleasant Local Museum
Jun 2021 • Couples
Recently re-opened, this quaint local museum is worth a visit if you have some time to while away. Run entirely by volunteers and primarily donated display items, it does give some interesting insights to aspects of local history. Free to visit - but donations are obviously much appreciated.

Great little museum
Feb 2020 • Family
What a gem this is little museum is. Very varied and interesting artifacts over 3 rooms one of which was the original magistrate court for oswestry. Entrance is free. The museum is run by volunteers who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They offer work experience within the museum to Year 10 students from the local secondary school. The building that the museum is housed in is in itself a splendid listed edifice that is very impressive. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

Free and Informative
Oct 2019
Hubby and me visited here on a recent Wednesday. I was very impressed with the architecture of The Guildhall itself which is a Grade 2 listed 3-storey building (with attics) which opened in 1893. It was free entry to the museum upstairs which is run by volunteers. The exhibits are displayed over 3 rooms, one of which used to be the Magistrates Court! We were interested in the majority of the items. Hubby liked the Penny Farthing bicycle and I liked the retro typewriters.

Very interesting

A very varied collection of what has been dug up and what has been handed down, with historic links to St Oswald and the welsh border nearby.

Well worth a visit for free
Sep 2019
A volunteer run museum with obviously little money to invest in modern displays but makes the most of what they can gather- if a little disorganised.An eclectic mix of exhibits about the local area largely based on donated artefacts - no modern virtual reality here. Not well signposted up several flights of stairs but there is a lift available, and useful toilets based in the Town Hall in the market square. .

Popped in here whilst visiting Oswestry town centre,
Typical small town museum,
Free entry (little in life is free now in this sad & mad world we live in),
There are toilets on the ground floor, but expect to climb several lots of stairs to access exhibits (there is a lift if needed).
Obviously as you’d expect, gives you an insight into Oswestry history and the surrounding area.
Didn’t exactly excite but as small town museums go its good.
Definitely worth popping for 30mins to 1 hour visit.

Really Worth A Visit
Oct 2018 • Family
This museum is in the old court rooms in Oswestry Town Hall. It's quite a climb to the top but is well worth the effort. I don't think many people realise how good and interesting the muuseum is. We live in Oswestry and had never visited before. You could easily spend an hour or two and learn so much about the locality.

An event not to be forgotten.
Aug 2018 • Couples
The title refers to the fact we got stuck in the lift! We only had about twenty minutes before our car-parking ticket expired and so we dropped in. It is the usual stuff for a small town - the medical items are interesting and quite diverse - there are some good views from the windows, best way to see in all directions as buildings obscure the surrounding countryside at street level. The staff stick in our memory - as I said the lift stuck - and we had probably most of the staff trying to get us out,I think they were more relieved than we were, bless the lady who appeared with bottles of water and glasses. Many thanks for a memorable visit! No charge, but donations gratefully received.
