An awful lot to see and do at this excellent museum. It's accessible, with lots of different areas, with a particularly interesting local history section. Well worth a visit.

Interesting David Cox exhibition. Couple of British Museum loans complementing their own collection of watercolours. Good to see smaller exhibition of Archaeological paintings by local artist Lines - fascinating record of 19 century Worcester.More

Why do we not know so many of our talented forebears. The current exhibition showing the work of the 19th C. watercolourist David Cox is superb. It is also free. It is running for another couple of months. Catch it while you can.
