    Well worth a visit with amazing history
    My friend and I visited today and were so thrilled with the layout and information. The whole place had a beautiful clean scent and in some rooms lovely piped music. We did enjoy the picture show in the Grand Hall. The painted room was amazing and we were nit hassled at all by anyone during out visit. The gardens and grounds were lovely, just a shame about the weather on the weather so we could not sit out and enjoy them more. However we felt the cafe somewhat disappointing and the prices a little high to our mind. However this did not spoil out lovely day out.

    A Royalist and a Roundhead
    Now me and Mrs C are pretty in tune with each other when it comes to history eg we both believe that Richard III was a good King and Henry Vii was an usurper, but when it comes to the English Civil War we are on different sides, she is a Royalist though I suspect this a lot to do with feathery hats, whereas I'm a Roundhead, power to the people etc, so a visit to The Commandery was a must!! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, the Great Hall is an excellent room with an unusual hammerbeam ceiling and has a quirky video of the houses inhabitants over the years, and you follow through a historical journey of the building, lots of info and exhibits from Civil War to printing works. The painted room is a spectacular example of its type, and I found the School for the Blind interesting, and I learnt a lot about the Battle of Worcester, well worth a visit

    Interesting but could be expanded
    Interesting but limited exhibits. I liked what was there but expected more. Lovely building. I understand they will be moving the military display (which is very good) from the current city art museum which I think is a good plan and will make the Commandery more worthwhile and bring together everything with this theme.

    Fascinating historical building
    We much enjoyed our visit yesterday. The staff were welcoming and warm, the building itself is fascinating and we really enjoyed walking around reading about the history of various parts. The signs and interactive displays were great too. I discovered that Braille is hard! :) And even the more recent history, with the printing press, was really interesting too. Altogether a positive experience and I'd gladly return!

    Really interesting for adults and good for kids too
    Brilliant visit. I knew little about Worcesters part in the civil war and feel like an expert now after reading every single sign! It’s an amazing building and seeing how it was used throughout history was really interesting. Very beautiful old hall. Plenty of children to do aswell, dress up, treasure hunt etc. didn’t try the escape rooms but did pop in the cafe for a cup of tea. The menu looked really good and you don’t have to have a museum ticket to visit the cafe. Highly recommend the museum.

    An unforgettable morning at the Commandery.
    I accompanied my visually impaired friend and her guide dog on a visit to the Commandery. She had booked a volunteer guide who was exceptional. He was so knowledgeable and considerate and made the history of that time come alive for us.

    There is so much to see in the Commandery. Although it looks small from the outside it is in fact an extensive site. The buildings themselves are remarkable and although some rooms lack detail others make up for it. The first stop is the Great Hall. As well as the room itself there is a short visual presentation. Although it is not well signed this covers the history of the property through the ages covering the civil war, a US presidential visit, a school for the blind and a printing works. During the remainder of your visit you will find historical evidence of all these. Next stop is the garden and you can proceed along the area tracing the history of the civil war and highlighting the significance of the two battles at Worcester. Continue and you will find Tudor and Georgian rooms. The other wing contains the true highlight of the property in the wall paintings of various saints. Truly remarkable and a must see. If you find yourself at the exit and have not seen this, ask, and go,find! You will see references to Elgar and the school for the blind. The site provides on site parking for blue badge holders - you need to book - and ask for directions in advance. The city car park opposite is just as close. If you park on site you will see the Birmingham and Worcester canal and a narrow lock! The site can provide a wheelchair but be aware that there is some uneven parts to traverse. Overall a wonderful place to visit and spend at least 2 hours. While finding your way around can be fun more signs would be incredibly helpful to ensure visitors see all that there is to see. Some earlier posts suggesting a lack of content indicate some visitors did not find all!
