The museum is small but it has a nice collection of artifacts. It is only one pound to enter. The curator is a great guy to chat with. A must visit.

This is an excellent museum with interesting facts about the very local area. Although small, it is well worth a visit.

If you visit Ludlow in Shropshire, I would recommend that you visit their museum. The building itself is very imposing & there are many historic documents, artifacts & bygones within its walls recalling times past & events which took place in & around Ludlow.
