THE FRIENDS OF
The Friends of Ludlow Museum support the Buttercross Museum (run by Ludlow Town Council) and Shropshire Museums Collections Centre (run by Shropshire Council). In particular the Friends assist in the purchase of objects and fund conservation of the collections.
Their objectives are to support and assist Ludlow Museum and to promote its use and enjoyment by the public as a Museum.
My family discovered this museum during a weekend stay at Ludlow and we were all very impressed with the varied and skilfully presented collection of artefacts spanning antiquity to the early 20th century, all of which are tastefully staged under sympathetic lighting with concise descriptions and tasteful graphics.”
Delightful little museum housed in a beautiful building with a stunning view. Thoughtful exhibits tell just a tiny slice of Ludlow's history. Adults and children alike can happily while away some time here. Don't miss it.”
I had a bit of time to kill, so I ventured into this quaint little museum!
The entry fee was a bargain, and the member of staff I got talking to was very knowledgeable. Some interesting artefacts on display, so well worth popping in for a hour”
