The headquarters of the Warwickshire Museum Service is housed in the 17th century market hall. It is one of the few buildings in the centre of Warwick that survived the disastrous fire that swept through the town in 1694. Displays of Geology, Biology and Archaeology illustrate the natural and historical heritage of the county that lies at the heart of England. The museum is noted in particular for the famous Sheldon Tapestry Map of Warwickshire, habitat displays and live bees. There is also a giant 180 million years old plesiosaur from the Jurassic, and a unique fossil amphibian found nowhere else in the world. A temporary exhibition gallery has displays which change every four to six weeks. The museum's shop has a good selection of souvenirs and greeting cards at affordable prices.

Wheelchair access to ground floor with assistance.
