Tewkesbury is generously endowed with late medieval half-timbered buildings, which make the town very attractive to look at as you walk through its streets and down its alleyways. The John Moore Museum is located in one of the 23 houses that constitute an extraordinary sequence...More

There is a small entrance fee. There are several old buildings (very old!) which constitute the premises of the John Moore Museum and you may be able to visit them all. The exhibits are local artifacts, examples of local wildlife, and rooms which show the...More

Our children LOVE this musuem and particularly the Merchants House to dress up and pretend to cook with medieval food - they could spend hours there

Beautifully restored building with lots to discover about John Moore and the countryside around Tewkesbury. Don't miss the Secret Garden.

The building alone is something special, amongst the oldest in Tewkesbury. The first set of stairs were a little tricky for my mom, but the second set were much easier for her to manage. Having grown up about 7 miles away, I found all the...More
