Museum closure

This National Lottery funded gallery refurbishment will display hidden stories and exhibits from the archives and illustrate the skills, techniques and developments of this remarkable factory. Excerpts from the workers audio recordings will describe the camaraderie and rivalry that existed between departments and show how the factory gained world renown.

Worcester City Council have invited the Museum Shop to operate from the Guildhall and the city centre location presents an exciting opportunity for the Museum to showcase plans for the redevelopment, promote new activities and generate income during the closure.


The Museum of Royal Worcester holds over 10,000 ceramic objects. This digital database has been extracted from our catalogue; it is our intention to provide world-wide access to this fascinating collection and further items will be added on a regular basis.
