On a quick visit to Stratford went to this quaint and quirky little museum. Lots of multi sensory exhibits and information about the Tudor world, low beams and all indoors this was a lovely museum in an authentic setting.

Tudor World is some kind of fake Tudor museum, trying to take you into that time of filth and horror. I cannot say that I enjoyed it, because I think I expected more from it, maybe to be more interactive and present that time period...More

A group of us went on a walking tour organised by Tudor World. The guide was dressed as the Bard himself. It was entertaining, informative and humorous. We enjoyed every minute of it. Well worth it. Highly recommended.

We visited the museum which is fantastically quirky with plenty of opportunities to get hands on and take a fair few selfies! The real treat though was the Shakespeare tour on Saturdays. What could be better than strolling the streets of Stratford with the Bard...More

Fun small interactive museum. Kids kept entertained by activity sheet. Takes about an hour if you look at everything properly. Would recommend as part of your Stratford Upon Avon trip.

This museum was great. I went here on my own but I saw loads of people with children (young and old) who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The museum is very interactive and perhaps the best part was that you could smell what a Tudor market place...More

The buliding itself is one of the oldest in town 1000 years + and looked lovely, the tour inside was a bit boring with boards of info pictures and history but i expected a bit more of the old house character to be shown.More

Apologies for the delay in replying. The museum can get very busy in the afternoons during holiday periods and weekends, but is a lot quieter in the mornings. We do get lots of school groups (even during the holiday as we... More
