Market Drayton Museum & Resource Centre 'The Story of Drayton'
Welcome to the Market Drayton Museum Homepage. Here you will find information about the museum, where we are situated and our opening times. Related web pages contain further information on the museum and its collections, local history, events and related organisations.
What is it?
It's the story of the town and the surrounding villages, from earliest times to today, illustrated with finds, pictures, maps and text. Everything in it is associated with the Drayton area – either made locally or with a special Drayton connection.
It's created by local people for locals and visitors. And it's 'living', because people are always dropping in to tell us things we didn't know.
It's run by volunteers and supported entirely by donations.
To find out more about the museum follow the links to Related Web Pages on the left-hand side of the screen.
Where is it?
53 Shropshire Street – next door but one to the King's Arms pub.
The most convenient car park is in the town centre (opposite the Festival Drayton Centre in Frogmore Road), walk down to the mini-roundabout, then it's a short way along Shropshire Street – about 200 yards in all.
When is it open?
We are open from April to October at the following times:
Tuesday: 10.30am - 1.00pm
Wednesday: 10.30am - 1.00pm
Friday: 10.30am - 1.00pm
Saturday: 10.30am - 1.00pm
Entry is free, but as the Museum is totally run by volunteers without help from 'the rates', we would appreciate a donation.
