Standard Museum entrance includes entry into the Museum and free audio tour, subject to availability, which gives visitors a greater insight into exhibits and displays as they explore the galleries.  We’re pleased to offer discounted entry rates for groups of 12 or more.

You can often witness firsthand the skills and processes of decorating fine porcelain with past-employees of the factory demonstrating in the galleries and sharing memories of life at ‘The Porcelain’ – please do call in advance to check days when demonstrations are likely to be taking place if this is important to your visit as they do vary.

Your will find a range of high quality and unique gifts in the Museum Shop which offers an ever-changing range of present day, vintage and antique Royal Worcester.

The Museum is situated just minutes walk from Worcester Cathedral and city centre and can offer on-site coach parking subject to availability and advance booking.

With prior booking we are pleased to offer a range of refreshment packages all served on best Royal Worcester china, from tea, coffee and biscuits to buffet lunches, afternoon tea or sit-down lunches. For more details click here or please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Our favourite quote from Henry Sandon, who frequently features on the BBC Antiques Road Show, is that visiting the Museum is his ‘Ideal Day Out!’ and we very much hope that we can offer your party a day that equals his enjoyment!

Private: Museum Refurbishment

A gentle soft opening took place on 1st June.  The £1.7M gallery refurbishment is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and as well as featuring the skills and workforce that made Royal Worcester famous it triumphs the pride associated with production.  Over 200 ex-factory workers have shared their living memories and a number demonstrate their skills in the galleries on a regular basis.

Two of our most important objectives are to appeal to families and up and coming generations and in support of that we entered into a collaboration with the High Street fashion Store OASIS last summer to deliver a 28-piece clothing range based on designs from our archives. We have just returned from RHS Malvern Spring Garden Show where we promoted the soft reopening in June and this autumn we are joining forces with Meadow Arts to mount an exhibition of contemporary porcelain makers who will be using the collections as inspiration for their works.  Another delightful, and already popular display, is the ‘Family Parlour’ where children are encouraged to take inspiration from the displays and create their own stories.
