This seventeenth-century house on Barker Street houses the municipal art gallery (on the ground floor) and museum (on first and second floors). The museum charts the development of Shrewsbury as a city from pre-historic times to the modern day in an interesting series of exhibitions. Each room in the museum takes a different period and attempts to recreate what Shrewsbury was like at that time. Free.
