Welcome to the Bridgnorth Museum, where the past meets the present. Our story began in 1951 when a group of local people got together to preserve the town's rich history. Located above the Northgate, at the north end of Bridgnorth's high street, where it has been a prominent fixture for over 70 years, the museum is entirely run and managed by a team of dedicated volunteers.
Over the years, the museum has amassed an impressive collection of over 5000 historical items from Bridgnorth and the surrounding area, making it a great place to discover some of the history of Bridgnorth and South Shropshire.
We are always looking to acquire interesting historical items to add to our collection, especially if they have a connection to Bridgnorth or the local area.
Please contact us, via the phone number or email address at the bottom of this page, if you have anything of local interest.
In 2007, the museum achieved a significant milestone when it became the first independent Shropshire museum to be awarded accreditation by the MLA, which sets nationally agreed standards for museum management, collection preservation, and visitor services.
