Tudor World, 40 Sheep Street, Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire CV37 6EE
Tudor World museum is run and owned by husband and wife team, Janet & John Ford – and a dedicated team of part-time actors and enthusiasts. Janet and John took over the museum at the end of 2007.
The museum has no funding or grants and relies completely on you the visitor to help in the upkeep of the historic building.
Despite limited resources, this plucky museum tries to put in as much ‘punch’ as possible.
The museum is suitable for all ages, but you might wish to warn children there are figures in some of the exhibits to enhance the experience and atmospheric lighting.
There are lots of interactive elements: from a touchscreen; videos to choose from; smells to try; a feast to sit at; a throne to regally perch upon and a four poster bed to lie on. You can take part in a written witch trial; go in the stocks or try your hand at quill writing in the school room.
