The Commandery is a historic building open to visitors and located in the city of Worcester, England. It opened as a museum in 1977 and was for a while the only museum in England dedicated solely to the Civil Wars. The Commandery ceased to be a Civil War museum when it reopened to the public in May 2007, having undergone a year and a half of refurbishments and reinterpretation jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Worcester City Council, who own the building. It is a Grade I listed building.

  • Had a fab time with a friend. So much to see and learn about! Sit in the library for a while, reading books. Try on clothes from an era long since past. Wander the gardens, try great food in the cafe, sitting by the canal. Don't forget the gift shop! 😀👍
  • Great place to spend 2-3 hours. Really interesting, different ways of presenting information and nice thoughtful details. Was good to trigger my school history knowledge!
