About us

Heritage & Culture Warwickshire, part of Warwickshire County Council, provide a range of services that help local communities, schools and visitors connect and engage with their local heritage. We do this through:

  • Welcoming over 70,000 visitors each year to our three main public sites – Market Hall Museum, St Johns House and the Warwickshire County Record Office.
  • Providing opportunities for people to take part in heritage activities, for example children’s holiday programmes, talks and workshops, school visits, sleepovers, volunteering.
  • Delivering a year round programme of curriculum-based schools programmes, both from our Warwick base and across the county as a whole.
  • Supporting local museums and heritage organisations across the county with professional advice, object loans and help with planning activities and events.

We also have responsibility for the care and protection of Warwickshire’s historic collections and Archives. Over 800,000 objects and 900 years of archives are looked after in our public sites, stores and strongrooms … and our collections grow every year thanks to donations and acquisitions. Our collections and archives are broad ranging and include geology, natural history, social history, archaeology and archival documents.

Heritage & Culture Warwickshire have a small professional staff team who can offer advice and support in a range of specialisms, including: Arts Development, Archaeology, Archives, Geology, Natural History, Social History, Heritage Education, Heritage Volunteering . If you have a query, information about how to contact the most appropriate person in our team can be found in the Contact Us area of this website.
