Shrewsbury's Victorian Music Hall and a rare 13th century mansion have been the focus of a ground-breaking restoration project that has created a vast new museum and spectacular gallery space. Visitors to the new museum go on a journey of discovery starting when mammoths roamed the county, unlocking stories from across Shropshire; stories of discovery and engineering creativity that influenced the world. The entire collection has been re-imagined for a modern audience, with exhibitions in five galleries exploring subjects from geology to natural history via art, archaeology and costume.
Operated by Shropshire Council the museum holds some of the nation's most treasured Roman artefacts, including an ornate silver mirror and a Hadrianic Inscription discovered at nearby Wroxeter. There are also themed exhibits and contemporary art dedicated to the work of scientist Charles Darwin, who was born and educated in Shrewsbury.
