The museum is located in the upper floor of the historic Buttercross. You enter through a door in the opposite side of the alley behind the Buttercross. Exhibits go from the prehistory of the area through to the 20th century.

It seemed a pity not to visit this museum while we were in Ludlow, but the collection is small, the displays unimaginative and we'd probably enjoyed spending more time at the nearbby Castle.

When in primarily to see the Saxon sword pommel as we had seen it in a leaflet. Lots of great local artefacts including a coin hoard and fossils. Really loved the temporary exhibit of Georgian bits and pieces from a local man's collection. Spent a...More
