About

Market Hall Museum is located in the Market Hall, a 17th-century landmark in the heart of Warwick. Recently refurbished with the help of a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the museum tells the story of Warwickshire, and how the shifting natural, built and human landscapes have shaped the county to the present day.

Our popular exhibits include:

  • The Museum Bear.
  • Oisin, our tweeting Giant Irish Deer skeleton.
  • Our observation beehive, cared for by local beekeepers (On occasion the beehive is taken off display for bee-care)
  • The Sheldon Tapestry Map of Warwickshire
  • The historic Wilmcote Plesiosaur skeleton
  • Two Warwickshire Roman silver coin hoards
  • Cross Hands Quarry Dinosaur
  • Historic costume display.
  • A real Warwickshire dinosaur from Cross Hands Quarry
