Bridgnorth Museum

Why not visit the Northgate Museum in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. Packed full of treasures, the Museum should be the first stop for anyone wanting to discover the history of the town and the local area. From an Edwardian cash till, to a model of Trevithick’s Steam Engine, the Museum’s collections will interest the whole family, both young and old.

We are always adding to the exhibits with “finds” in the Bridgnorth District area so please come and see for yourself.

The museum is run and managed by volunteers from the Bridgnorth and District Historical Society, which founded the museum in 1951.

The Curator is proud to announce that the Museum has, from 1st November 2007, become the first independent Shropshire museum to be given Accreditation by the MLA (Museum, Libraries, and Archives Council). The MLA set nationally agreed standards that the Museum must meet as to how it is run, looks after it’s collections and what services it provides for visitors.

2009 started as a good year for the volunteers of the museum as we were selected as the West Midlands Regional winners of the Marsh Awards for volunteers. Our selection was from 90 other museums across the country and the Regional winners were invited to the British Museum in London for the award ceremony. The museum volunteers had a chance to be the National winners with a prize of £1000. The winners were a children’s museum in Glasgow. Well done them but we were very happy to be one of the 12 Regional winners.

Entry to the museum is free, but donations are welcomed.
