Attraction Information

Malvern Museum of Local History may be small, but it tells a vast story, starting with rocks and fossils, to the later events that shaped Malvern.
Discover the history of the Priory Gatehouse and look for the window called Porter's Squint, and find out about the events that shaped Malvern from a tiny hamlet to a popular holiday resort. Kids can dress up as Benedictine monks or peasants in the Medieval Room, learn about treatments in the Water Cure Room, and find out about the expansion of Malvern in the Victorian Room, which gives a glimpse of another way of life.

The Twentieth Century Room covers extraordinary achievements, like the development of radar, and explores how the Great War affected local population. There are more stories to discover in the Upstairs Corridor, where Edward Elgar is commemorated.
A free audio guide is available, which give some amusing glimpses into the past, and the friendly, enthusiastic volunteers who run the museum are only too happy to share their knowledge. Activities for the family include building a castle, guessing what a scientist is doing, and following a QR trail.
