Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum Highlights

Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum showcases an amazing array of objects related to the City of Worcester and its history.

See incredible items gathered from all over the world by the founders of the museum that have fascinated visitors for decades in the City Museum, or visit The Worcestershire Soldier to see a popular permanent exhibition featuring collections and objects from the Mercian Regiment Museum Worcestershire (formerly the Worcestershire Regiment Museum), Worcestershire Yeomanry Cavalry and the City Museum Service.

We have many Star Attractions, but there are certain pieces that the public always seem to appreciate and remember: the Chemist Shop, the mighty Sturgeon, Sabrina and of course Albert the Albatross.
