Classical music lovers will really enjoy this museum. Large car park, excellent friendly welcome, very interesting artefacts and information on Elgar's life. The little cottage where he was born is a gem and the garden a treat too with views across to the Malverns. We were told that the Museum is scheduled to become National Trust. On another point, the... 更多
As big fans of classical music this is a great place to learn more about and the man and his music. I visited here over a decade back, the included audio guides and video have given this attraction improved value since then. The visitors centre is well laid out and its lovely to be able to listen to excerpts of... 更多

This was a very interesting place to visit. We spent much longer than expected there! the video at the beginning was very informative.
I'd recommend this pleasant little house and museum. The staff are friendly and helpful, it's peaceful, and you learn a lot about Elgar himself.
The cottage is well laid out with many of Elgar's possessions. The (relatively new) museum has a wonderful collection of extracts of his manuscripts as well. The introductory video is good if you are new to Elgar, and want an introduction to who he was, and his work.
This is the real thing. Everything you have 'heard'about Elgar in his setting. Worth a visit as you get the whole story told by people who care and knowledgeable on their subject.
What a wonderful atmosphere there is at Elgar's Birthplace. You can just imagine him being here. Everything is beautifully arranged and looked after without being too fussy. Going to the museum has reminded us about Elgar and we pay more attention to information about him on the radio and to listening to his music again.
