Welcome to Malvern Museum
2021 Latest News:
Malvern Museum will remain closed for the rest of 2021.
The trustees accepted the recommendations made by the H&S trustee and the museum manager to stay closed; this decision was based on the Covid risk assessments being too high in a small building
We apologise for any disappointment this decision may have caused

The town's ancient monastic gatehouse is home to Malvern Museum of Local History. There are countless tales of old, from life on the exposed prehistoric hill forts to the medieval forest and monastery; from dripping wet sheets of Water Cure patients to Malvern motor cars and the secret work of countless radar scientists. The museum is small yet there is so much to do, see and hear that many visitors regret not making more time for their visit.
Dressing up activities, slide shows, a touchscreen and audio guides offer gentle, often amusing glimpses into our rich past.
Please note that there is restricted access for those with mobility issues
The only way to explore upstairs is via a twisty staircase. Visitors with restricted mobility can still experience the first floor displays however, with a Power Point slideshow downstairs. This offers insights to the main exhibitions. Historical ‘eye witnesses’ on our audio guides give the low-down on Malvern’s history too. These are free to use. A ramp into the building is also available. Visitors with visual impairments can make use of large print room guides with colour overlays if necessary.
