The Art Gallery and Museum holds a wonderful cornucopia of culture and heritage; the museum demonstrates the wealth of Worcester’s heritage, while the gallery offers a wide range of high-profile art exhibitions. Both areas are accompanied by a rich programme of workshops and events.
The venue welcomes more than 50,000 visits each year, including visitors to its regular art exhibitions, schools taking part in educational workshops and families experiencing the eclectic range of collections, displays and events.
The Art Gallery and Museum is free to all visitors and charges nominal entry fees to events and some special exhibitions to ensure that everyone can enjoy the venue’s unique cultural and heritage offerings.
Philanthropic donations are hugely welcomed to support this beautiful building, its collections, exhibitions and events.
Worcester’s beautiful Art Gallery and Museum was built more than 120 years ago in 1896, funded by people like you – local benefactors who saw the immense benefits in making art and museum collections available to everyone.
