Tewkesbury Museum (Tewkesbury)

Tewkesbury Museum tells the story of the old market town of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire.

It stands in Barton Street, one of the main streets of the town.

The building was acquired in 1956, and evidence has been found that it probably dates from the 15th century.

The museum was opened in 1962, after considerable conservation and renovation work had been carried out, and is run as a charitable trust.

There is a collection of fairground models, complementing the fairground equipment formerly made in Tewkesbury by the Walker company, and displays of bygone trades and the Mop Fair.

The most popular exhibit is the diorama of the Battle of Tewkesbury, a decisive Wars of the Roses battle fought in 1471.
