  • Very interesting and informative. About John Moores history and the books he wrote. The visit around the Tudor House was a delight. And the old baptist church and cemetery was lovely

  • Small museum but fascinating. Small taxidermy display that contained some unusual wildlife - and they weren't the usual tatty victorian examples. Really good to see the creatures close-up. Yes it is.....  more

  • Great exhibitions in authentic medieval buildings.
  • Entered round the back of the building, this beautiful 15th century building is visited in two parts. The first building is dedicated to John Moore and his books. The town of Elmbury in his famous book is a thinly veiled reference to Tewkesbury. The museum is situated on three levels and has many exhibits of stuffed animals and old tools. The second building, a few doors along, is a look at the life of a merchant who would have lived and worked in one of these houses. The house in question has been stripped back to what it would have looked like in the 15th century. Fascinating look at how the well off lived six centuries ago.
