Small, but well presented, John Moore Museum is a good attraction in Tewkesbury, with a variety of exhibits well presented.

A visit to Tewkesbury would not be complete without a visit to the 15th century Merchant's house. The audio tour was brilliant. And only £4 for this museum and the old Baptist Chapel!!

This is well worth a visit. There is lots of things to dress up in and touch/play in the tudor house and lots to feel and see in the museum.

Part of the museum is the house next door, which is a preserved Medieval merchant's house with an audio display and outside is a lovely secret garden

The lady in the tourist information centre recommended to come here. She was right. The gentleman at the reception was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I didn't opt for the natural history part of the museum as I'm not a fan of padded animals (and come from a city which has huge dinosaur skeletons on display in its Natural History... More

Tewkesbury has many small cut throughs between houses and we were drawn to this one as the Baptist chapel had been just recently renovated. A small place with friendly volunteers who know the history of the chapel and it's baptistry (mind where you tread) like the back of their hand. A real revelation. There is also a small graveyard at... More

Visited on a cold rainy day, but welcomed by a very warm and friendly member of staff. All very eager to help and tell one about the place. The restored Tudor buildings were a fascinating delivery of what once was.

We visited the museum on a rainy day in February. The one member of staff present at the time was pleasant and helpful. The history of the merchant house is well explained through the audio devices supplied, and the countryside part was of great interest to my 8 year old. I give only 4 stars as I suspect this attraction... More

It is advertised as the John Moore exhibition but to be honest the best part was the merchant house and how they lived in those days. Worth a visit, it was only £2.50 for seniors.
