Nestled in a row of historic timber-framed buildings, the museum was established in 1980 in memory of the writer and naturalist John Moore. Today it is also home to an extensive Natural History collection featuring specimens of the mammals and birds native to our countryside, woodlands and wetlands. A few doors away is The Merchant's House, a two storey building which has been beautifully restored and furnished to show the construction of a 15th century shop and dwelling.
The museum is owned by the Abbey Lawn Trust, a buildings preservation charity who aims to preserve and improve the attractions of Tewkesbury town as a place of historic and artistic interest.
