Family Fun

Families are always welcome at Shrewsbury Museum. Whether it’s dressing up, using our story bags, writing with quills or listening to our Medieval ‘audio hats’, there’s lots to do at Shrewsbury Museum.

We subscribe to the Kids in Museums manifesto and ensure our team of staff and volunteers offer a warm and welcoming environment for families to explore, create, play and learn….and we never say Shhhhh…!!
