Warwickshire and Worcestershire Museum Services jointly deliver the  Museum on the Move service. This project is funded through Arts Council England (ACE) and forms part of the wider Museums Keep Moving partnership. This partnership involves the shire counties of the Midlands (Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Staffordshire) and the Black Country conurbation (Wolverhampton). Museum on the Move (MoM) exists to challenge rural isolation and social exclusion and to provide access to museum services for a variety of audiences.  These include visits to schools, sheltered accommodation, disability groups, care homes, hospitals, town centres, festivals and shows as well as a range of other venues.

In 2010 the project was awarded the Sandford Award for Heritage Education as a mark of our excellence in the field of heritage learning.

Our exhibitions are fun, enjoyable, educational and memorable. We also hope that our exhibitions will enhance the teaching and appreciation of the arts, heritage and culture at all levels and build knowledge and confidence in people of all ages and abilities.

  • A set of handling boxes is available to use off the vehicle.
  • The vehicle needs a safe place to park and sufficient access and turning space.

  • A visit on board takes approximately 40 minutes
