Children and their families can take part in great activities like Mini-Mammoths to following the trail of Maximo Mouse through the museum – there’s always something in this family Museum for children to have fun and learn.

The extraordinary buildings that are home to the museum cover 750 years of history: from a medieval townhouse to early Victorian public rooms. The Music Hall has entertained generations of Salopians with famous faces from Dickens to The Beatles.
