This is a gem of a place to visit in Tewkesbury.
The two guys and lady there are really informative.
Great talks, particularly about the 14th and 15th centuries. Better still with a focus on the lower and merchant classes.
It's an absolute must if you're in Tewkesbury.

House in a row of Tudor buildings this certainly takes you back in time.Undoubtedly due to its age there is no toilet.The exhibits were of little interest to me,stuffed birds and animals mainly.

I wanted to know a little more about Tewkesbury's history, so I called into The John Moore museum.
Very helpful staff who explained many things to us, and whilst looking round, you certainly took in so much of “years gone by” of this fascinating old market town.

The John Moore Museum is a very interesting group of museums. It is part of a terrace of very old buildings, one of which has been left as it was in Tudor times, another houses a spectacular collection of countryside exhibits and animals, and there is also a very early Baptist Chapel. We were a bit late in the season to appreciate the cottage gardens at their best and the Baptist Chapel was closed to visitors, so visit before the end of September if you want to see everything! Even so, it was a very good couple of hours.

You really can't go wrong! Well apart from the place appearing closed. It is in a row of terraced houses so can't have the shop front type open door but don't panic just try the door!

I was greeted by a friendly lady telling me about the place and the man it's named after. Told in a personal non scripted way, this is not a bland corporate museum! That means no accountant pushing prices up year on year, the chapel was closed on the day of my visit so £3 entry covers the museum and the house.

The museum covers a lot of the naturalist beliefs of John Moore with information on species and also farming tools. Like everyone else I prefer seeing the animals alive but the stuffed specimens give you a chance to feel an otters coat without it biting your fingers off. The specimens are donated and "restored" after being found by local land owners- none are killed especially to be put on display. There is an explanation of the taxidermists work which is quite fascinating.

You then walk through to the merchants house. Merchants never had mansions but there is still plenty of interest to learn and the audio guide is free (yeah only £3 and an audio guide!).

There's more here than you'd imagine, the lady there on my visit was friendly informative and helpful with other information on the area. I don't recall a box for donations but there should be one as I think many people will appreciate the low admission charge and be content to donate more in recognition of something they learnt from their visit.

As museums go this was quite interesting but my favourite part was the Merchant's House. The audio guide here was very good and held my interest throughout.

This is a very interesting museum in a row of mediaeval houses with very interesting taxidermy exhibits and displays and posters relating to the local countryside. This ties in with John Moore's works as he was a local author who wrote about Tewkewsbury and its surroundings. It is cheap to visit and you should definitely include the Merchant's House and the Old Baptist Chapel on your ticket. The merchant's house is a couple of doors down but is accessed via the "secret garden" - which would be worth the admission by itself! I only looked at the ground floor in the Merchant's House as the stairs are rather steep but there is a great deal there, including a free audio guide. You can read the transcripts of the upstairs audio guide without going up, which I thought was very helpful.

The John Moore museum and the Old Baptist church were very interesting and have been restored sympathetically to represent a different age. Would especially mention the staff who were very knowledgeable and helpful

Absolute tardis of interesting information about John Moore, wildlife & Tewkesbury living in by gone years. Spent over an hour wondering around. Plenty to see & learn. Very friendly staff. A must see, even for the locals of Tewkesbury.

The John Moore Museum is really three museum properties co-ordinated under the name of the original museum. This is in one of the houses in the long timber-framed row of medieval cottages that front the main road into the town from the south, with the fine Abbey building towering up behind them.

We have to be honest – on this occasion we did not have time to explore the three floors of the main museum; but nevertheless, we were warmly welcomed by the person in charge. We were delighted to find that our entrance tickets were attractive willd-life bookmarks!

I was very keen that a friend visiting from the US should see the tiny 'Merchants House', accessed via the main museum and its garden a couple of properties further along the terrace. When this complex of buildings was rescued from near dereliction and expertly restored at the end of the 1960s, the imaginative decision was made by the owners, The Abbey Lawn Trustees, to retain one of the cottages in its medieval form, complete with internal kitchen open to the ridge of the roof with a smoke hatch at the top (no chimney!), Since the front room at ground level had served as a shop with drop-down shutters opening on to the street this feature was also replicated.

In 2011 the house was further restored and cleverly fitted out as closely as possible to the arrangement of a small-scale merchant's residence and business premises. There is an excellent sequence of audio interpretations, visitors using small hearing wands in each room. Great that there are benches to sit on while enjoying the 'explanations and stories' thus imparted. The spaces are so small that there is only room for six to eight people inside at one time. The culmination of this delightful experience is the upstairs bedroom: VERY STEEP STAIRS, but worth the hazard to see the original six upper treads made from quarter-sawn oak logs. The four-poster bed with simple woollen hangings is appropriately restrained; blankets and mattress can be lifted to see the traditional cords threaded across the frame. The 'daughter of the house' will tell you about her small truckle bed that is rolled out from beneath her parents bedstead.

The third part of this museum is the former Baptist Chapel, down a narrow brick alley on the opposite side of the main road. More recently restored, its original baptism pool is retained at the centre of the floor, a timber gallery runs round three sides of this main space. Useful facilities have been sensitively introduced so that this building provides scope for the events and educational activities run by the museum.
