About Museum of Royal Worcester
The Museum of Royal Worcester: an exceptional heritage of local, regional, and national importance.
“amongst the wonders of the world… a magical place,” Museum visitor.
Discover 250 years of colourful stories through the world’s largest collection of Worcester porcelain, and important factory and design archive – in the place where they were made. Find out about the extraordinary stories of the workers and artists who skilfully made the objects and the celebrity customers who enjoyed them, with our audio guide, listening points and trails. In stunning galleries, completely refurbished in 2018 by our National Lottery Heritage Fund supported refurbishment, you’ll see some of the earliest porcelain made in England and iconic objects like Admiral Lord Nelson’s breakfast teapot, the 1865 exquisite Earl-of-Dudley tea-service and famous Evesham oven-to-table ware.
Our Vision is to inspire people with the rich inheritance of porcelain in Worcester, bringing the collections alive by sharing ordinary and extraordinary experiences of china and connecting our local story to global histories.
