Why not visit the Northgate Museum in Bridgnorth, Shropshire? Packed full of treasures, the Museum should be the first stop for anyone wanting to discover the history of the town and the local area. From an Edwardian cash till, to a model of Trevithick's Steam Engine, the Museum's collections will interest the whole family, both young and old. We are always adding to the exhibits with "finds" in the Bridgnorth District area so please come and see for yourself. The Curator is proud to announce that the Museum has, from 1st November 2007, become the first independent Shropshire museum to be given Accreditation by the MLA (Museum, Libraries, and Archives Council). The MLA set nationally agreed standards that the Museum must meet as to how it is run, looks after its collections and what services it provides for visitors. Entry to the museum is free, but donations are welcomed. The museum is run and managed by volunteers from the Bridgnorth and District Historical Society, which founded the museum in 1951. Highlights of the collection: Clay pipes- Coat of arms - Coins - Coracle - Fire marks- Images of Northgate - Trevithick stationary steam engine model - Turret clock.
