Tudor House Museum
Tudor House Museum has been almost entirely volunteer-run since 2004, and has proved a huge success with over 12,000 visitors a year, Trip Advisor certificates of excellence and a dedicated, growing Friends group.
The Museum itself is spread out over 3 buildings, all amalgamated during the early 20th Century, and covers the spread of history from 1550 to 1950. The focus is on the development of the city of Worcester, the social history and the story of the house, with a spotlight on weaving and cloth-making as that was the trade Worcester was internationally famous for in the 16th Century. The house itself underwent many changes of use, from home to weavers shop, from tavern to coffee house, from ARP Warden’s office to school clinic.
There is currently no entry charge: they raise money via donations, education visits, the Friends group, events, gift shop and fundraising schemes such as the tea cosies. There is also a coffee shop onsite which provides the bulk of their income.
The museum is looking for new volunteers to take on gate steward, room steward and café volunteer duties; all of these front of house roles are crucial to the visitor experience and our dedicated volunteers help support the Museum!
