Visit Exhibitions at Home
Over the coming weeks, Museums Worcestershire will be bringing our collections to you, through an exciting programme of activities, videos and interactive fun. #MuseumFromHome means that even during these strange times, we can bring culture to everyone online. We’ll be updating this page with curator videos, digital exhibitions, and gallery tours as they’re released… so watch this space!
Roman Worcestershire: On Tracks of Iron & Salt
Get a second look at this popular exhibition which was displayed in our museums in 2011. Discover the story of Roman Worcestershire, take a 360-degree tour of Bays Meadow Roman Villa which once stood in Droitwich, and enjoy Roman-inspired craft activities for the whole family.
Visit our newest exhibition at home. Skyscape – an exhibition celebrating the skies, their important role in art and the emotions they can evoke – was due to open on 4 April 2020. As our doors are closed for now, we’ve decided to bring highlights of this stunning show to you by sharing an artwork on our website every week to calm and inspire you.
Follow us on social media for additional discussion topics and information about the exhibition, and share your response to the artworks using #Skyscape.
When our exhibition Mayflower 400 opened back in January we could not have anticipated the wonderful reception it received. While our doors are closed we want to make sure people can still enjoy it!
The exhibition tells the story of the Pilgrim’s trip from Plymouth, UK to Plymouth, MA in the USA in 1620. It includes fascinating Native American objects including our specially-conserved Seal Gut Parka, and the story of Droitwich local Edward Winslow who sailed on the voyage.
Georgians: The Pride & The Prejudice
See the stunning exhibition which was on display at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum before we closed our doors in March.
Delve into the Georgian period and explore the characters and stories of the age! See rarely-displayed Georgian artwork, beautiful costume, plus a first edition of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
