Amazing local museum .. the building has been moved to its current location brick by brick. Look upstairs at the boot bath that was wheeled from house to house for residents to use. Free entry .

This tiny museum holds a wealth of local history. How they cram so much in such a tiny house is amazing. It is run by volunteers and is free but a donation should be paid as it is well worth one.

A wonderful little museum packed to the rafters with local historical memorabilia and documents, clothing and everyday items from the past. The volunteer working there knew all about the history of the house and was fascinating to listen to. Admission is free but let's not take advantage of that. Let's be benevolent, if not fair, and pop a couple of... More

We visited this compact museum , to say it is small there is a good selection of items to view . Steep narrow steps to the upper level.

A really interesting eclectic mix of exhibits in a ancient, small salvaged building. Particularly liked the old collection of musical instruments, including a hurdy gurdy. Lots of fascinating insights in Ledbury times gone by. Well worth a visit.

This interesting museum is housed in another black and white period building. Inside it is just 2 floors of exhibits, with the upper gallery reached by some rather steep steps. One of the most unusual exhibits is the very large "Boot Bath" - made of metal and foot shaped but some 4 ft long and about 2 ft high; this... More

The museum is free to enter and housed in a relocated old building. It can be summed up as giving the history of Ledbury and its inhabitants over the last two hundred years. The volunteers manning the museum are on hand to answer questions.
