Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle will be letting all dad's visit for free on Father's Day, Sunday 21 June (11am-5pm).

The County Museum, housed within the historic Hartlebury Castle, has over 1,000 years of history to explore including horse drawn vehicles, social history, costume, toys and archaeology as well as displays about aspects of Worcestershire including the county's geology, waterways and agriculture. In the summer months the Castle's magnificent State Rooms are also open. And on Sunday 21 June all dads can enter completely free of charge!

Visitors can also take the chance to enjoy our temporary exhibition of replica costume featuring outfits worn by King George and Queen Charlotte, in the grand surroundings of the Georgian Saloon. Dads will also enjoy our 'Hoards, Handbags & Highwaymen' exhibition which includes the complete Bredon Hill Roman Coin Hoard as well as a new item, just added this week, the fascinating Habingdon chest.

And why not give your Dad the treat he really deserves in The Castle Kitchen Café where there will be tasty home-cooked meals and snacks available. 

Rachel Robinson, Manager at Worcestershire County Museum, said: “The County Museum is excited about being able to reward all the hard working Dads of Worcestershire with a free day out on their special day and a chance to discover over 1000 years of history in the evocative setting of Hartlebury Castle."

Admission costs £5 for adults, £2.50 for concessions and £13 for a family ticket (two adults and two children), but of course on 21 June all dads (accompanied by a child) will be admitted free!
