We visited the Museum on a warm afternoon and welcomed the cool shade. The exhibits are wide ranging and well described. The workhouse display shows the depths of despair that some residents of Montgomery must have experienced. The descriptions of businesses in the Montgomery of...More

No visit to the charming town of Montgomery should pass without supporting this excellent little museum. Check for opening times online. It's too cheap at £2. They should put the price up. Enjoy a fascinating visit here; devour some scrummy nourishment at the Castle Kitchen;...More

There's an old world charm about Montgomery, and it's reflected in this nice little museum. The slide show is interesting, showing views of the village over the last 125 years, and the displays are neatly arranged with much information.

All things Montgomery but afraid to ask. On 2 floors which are themselves uneven and old floor boards. Staff v enthusiast and helpful. Grand sum of £1 to enter. Ideal to while away an hr.
