John Moore Countryside Museum

Address : 41 Church Street
Town/City : Tewkesbury
County : Gloucestershire
Country : England
Post code : GL20 5SN
Web Site :  www.johnmooremuseum.org

The John Moore Countryside Museum focuses on rural Gloucestershire and its wildlife and being set on the main street through the town means you can easily uncover a good place to eat.

You can stop at the nearby 1471 Delicatessen (named after the Battle of Tewkesbury) or walk round the corner to the Abbey, which has a small cafe run by volunteers.

The Bell Hotel does good teas and coffees as well as some unusual bar snacks. After you have eaten head back to the museum in its 15th Century building. Make sure your kids have washed their hands because they can stroke a fox, mole, otter and hedgehog (although they are examples of taxidermy rather than live inhabitants) with further birds and animals to be discovered over the next two floors.

To help families explore there are quizzes for children with Moore the Mole providing you with a score at the end. A trip around the museum should be about an hour.
