The museum service is lucky to have a large team of volunteers who have contributed greatly to the work that we do. In the past this has often meant them working in cramped stores without enough room to do the job. However, in the new Museum Resource Centre we now have a dedicated Volunteer workroom with both access to materials for packing or working on collections, as well as plenty of light and the room to work.
Our research room provides the space for people to come and work with the collections, whether it’s a PhD student wanting to examine local fossils or someone looking through back copies of the Ludlow Journal to find out what was happening in the 1950’s.
|Though this service is free, we do require some notice in order to get the material ready, so please contact us first to book an appointment.|
A conservation lab has been built in to the new resource centre. This space can be hired by conservators wishing to use the facilities or used by our own staff for work on the collections as and when work is needed; such as the cleaning and repair of specimens for displays.
The new education facility at Ludlow Museum Resource Centre is a designated area for learning where children and adults can enjoy access to the collections through a specially designed schools programme, adult classes and workshops.
Two teaching areas including microscopes, computer workstations and small equipment are available to help with the study of the collections.

The meeting room is a space for both the Library and Museum to display temporary exhibitions. It is also available for hire by groups for talks and events, or by artists wishing to display their work.
