Housed within the town’s Grade II Victorian Music Hall and one of the country’s rare 13th-century mansions, Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery features a broad range of artefacts alongside a rolling programme of contemporary art. A family-friendly experience guides visitors through key historical moments, bringing to life the Roman, Medieval, Tudor and Stuart eras. The museum provides plenty of information about local history too, telling the story of Shropshire from pre-history to the modern day. A section focusing on Shrewsbury’s most famous-ever resident, Charles Darwin, also features.
