Fodor's Expert Review Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery
Located in the the town’s former Music Hall, this museum chronicles the history of the area, from prehistoric times to the present day. One gallery tells the story of Roman occupation; some genuine finds include a unique silver mirror from nearby Wroxeter. Another gallery focuses on the boom years of the 19th century, including a display on the life of Shrewsbury’s most famous son, Charles Darwin. Special exhibitions change regularly.
