The Market Hall Museum is currently closed for refurbishment work, funded by the Heritage lottery Fund. Reopens Saturday 18th February!
The headquarters of Warwickshire Museum Service is at the Market Hall, a 17th Century building in the centre of Warwick. Here you’ll find displays on the geology, natural history and early history of the county. Highlights include the Sheldon Tapestry Map of Warwickshire, the second largest early Roman coin hoard in the country, our live observation bee hive and our famous (tweeting!) Giant Irish deer. The museum also hosts exciting events throughout the year.
Normal Opening Times
- 10.00am – 5.00pm Tuesdays – Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays (all year round)
- 11.30am – 5.00pm Sundays (April – September only)
Cafe opening hours: 8.00am – 4.00pm Tuesday to Saturday
The refurbishment will see the addition of a public toilet, cafe and an improved shop offering a range of gifts to suit all ages.
We aim to provide a safe and healthy environment for visitors to Market Hall. You can help us by: observing all notices and signs during your visit, ensuring all children are properly supervised at all times, and by following any instructions or advice given by museum staff. The floors at Market Hall are uneven due to their historic nature so we would also ask you to wear appropriate footwear.
