The museum offers a varied programme of exhibitions and events throughout the year with appeal for all ages.
During the school holidays we offer various themed craft activities for children
Go underground in the World War II air raid shelter. Guided tours help to recreate the 1940s experience. During the second world war, Bewdley’s Post Office was housed in the large black and white building next door to the Museum. Its Air Raid Shelter was built in 1940 by the Ministry of Defence, for the use of the staff employed in, and by, the Post Office.
The museum also has a range of boxes featuring different periods in history which we loan out. They support the National Curriculum and are perfect for demonstrations in classes or just for general interest. Each box comes with an information leaflet complete with teaching notes. Loan boxes are available to any group, not just schools.
