More about the Tudor Museum

The Tudor World museum stands as a distinctive and quaint independent museum housed within an original Tudor property nestled in the heart of Stratford upon Avon.

As the sole museum in the country dedicated to the Tudor era, it distinguishes itself by eschewing artefacts and period furniture in favor of immersive recreations depicting various aspects of Tudor life.

These exhibits are intertwined with captivating narratives detailing the rich history of the building itself, which traces its origins back to the birth of the town in the late 12th century, as well as the broader history of Stratford upon Avon. Situated along the only remaining cobbled street in Stratford, the museum's very location exudes historical charm.
