Oswestry Town Museum
Telephone: 01691 680241
Oswestry Town Museum is full of interesting exhibits that are brought to life by the friendly and informative volunteers who run this excellent little place.
Discover the history of Oswestry through a timeline exhibition that maps everything from the formation of rocks to present day.
There are displays on a variety of subjects, such as Oswestry Town Football Club, and the geology of the area. You can also learn about Llanymynech Limeworks and the Welsh guards, plus there is a children’s activity room. Kids will enjoy completing the quizzes and being able to handle and draw a number of interesting items.
There is a great section showing ‘now and then’ images of Oswestry, which shows the changes to the town, plus an audiovisual presentation of the Battle of Crogen. The old Magistrate’s Court displays the ‘Pegasus’ stone, which was found in 2008 by the Highways department, and the Judges chamber has a curious collection of items from the Orthopaedic Hospital.

It may be worth checking out Oswestry Town Museum's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Oswestry Town Museum before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
