About

The museum hosts temporary exhibitions, exciting events and arts & craft courses throughout the year, so there is always something new to see and do at Hartlebury.

New events for 2011 include a Humpty Dumpty themed Easter and 'We'll Meet Again...' a WW2 themed re-enactment day, combined with old favourites like our Festival of Transport and our very popular family activities in the school holidays.

Also new for 2011 is a programme of one-day workshops including rag-rugging, digital photography and close-up magic. We are also holding a series of lunchtime walks & talks including behind the scenes tours, archaeological walks, explorations of the trees on the estate and a talk about Worcestershire's Home Guard.

Book your tickets now!

Our new programme of walks and talks offers visitors the chance to explore a range of fascinating subjects inspired by the Museum and its site.

Unless stated otherwise walks and talks begin at 11am and last up to two hours before lunch is served.
