Although we found this fascinating, it did make us wish our children were still young. They would have really loved it. The displays are well thought out and appeal to all ages, but the quirky nature of the building itself lends a cosy intimate feeling that make it Feel particularly accessible to children. Well worth a visit.

There is a wide selection of wildlife information and animals from our countryside. It is an ideal place to take children teach them about animals and birds that they may not see live. The building is one of four originating from the Middle Ages that were saved from being pulled down during the 1960's by the Trust who now owns... More

Just a hop and a skip from Tewkesbury's beautiful abbey, this museum is housed within a row of quaint 15th century cottages. My grandchildren, aged 2 and 5, were fascinated by the exhibits. First the stuffed animals, which they were encouraged to touch, and then the old merchant's house, restored as it would have been when built. There are dressing-up... More

Visited the museum in small groups and were given a fantastic insight as to what life had been like to live there. It was very interactive, having a go at a hands on quiz and dressing up. Combined with visiting other sights in Tewkesbury it made a worth while visit.

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!!

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
