Loved this place, so much to see in what is essentially like a tardis. Loved the sloping floors, views of the town from the windows & the informative staff who can enhance your visit

Genuine items of local interest and the two Shropshire women I met there were a wellspring of information both about the exhibits and the history of the locale. This is history made real for all those who visit.

A fascinating house in the middle of the town by the town hall hosting a wee museum with an eclectic mix of objects. Free entry and open on a Sunday, unlike most of Bishops Castle. Take a look!

Free entry!!! but you'll be happy to make a donation to the upkeep of such a unique place. Hands on in the school room - children are encouraged to play and dress up. Knowledgeable volunteers running the place
