It was Elgar's wish that every school child in Worcestershire had an opportunity to visit the Elgar Birthplace Museum.
It is our wish that every child in the country is able to visit us!
The Elgar Birthplace Museum offers a fascinating insight into the life and music of Sir Edward Elgar, England's greatest composer, and the Victorian and Edwardian era in which he lived.
At tea-time the three dogs [Marco, Mina and Meg] line up in front of Sir Edward, who sits on the arm of a couch and gives them sweet biscuits and cake. At a word they simultaneously rise up like soldiers and stand at attention. A friend of Sir Edward's calls them "The Three Musketeers" because of this trick.
(The animal writer Rowland Jones c. 1930)
We offer a range of services tailored to the education sector which cover both classroom work and visits to the Museum.
