There are really only two rooms but they're packed with info and exhibits.. You can pick up an old fashioned telephone and hear local voices telling you about many different aspects of life in days gone by - fascinating. Must mention Petra, the curator on...More

The museum is small but it has a nice collection of artifacts. It is only one pound to enter. The curator is a great guy to chat with. A must visit.

This is an excellent museum with interesting facts about the very local area. Although small, it is well worth a visit.

This museum was the main reason we were visiting Ludlow as there was a small but interesting temporary exhibition on there that we wanted to see. It was about a magazine company (Newsfield) that used to be based in the adjacent building back in the...More
