A small part of the collections is on public display in the various museums around the county of Shropshire, including Shrewsbury (Market Hall), Ludlow (Buttercross), Much Wenlock and Acton Scott.

The major part of the collections is housed within the Shropshire Museums Resource Centre in Ludlow, co-located with the public library.

The collections are an important resource, locally, nationally and, in the case of the fossils, internationally. They are regularly used by schools, universities and individual researchers.

The Museums Service Mission Statement is as follows: "We develop and sustain museums and collections which offer people imaginative quality opportunities to actively engage with Shropshire's heritage in a way which meets their needs as an individual or community."

The Shropshire Museums Resource Centre at Ludlow was designed and built in 2003 to provide not only storage and care for the majority of the Services’ collections but also to include dedicated rooms for education, supervised research, and conservation. The purpose of these is to allow material to be requested from our collection stores and studied in an appropriate space where equipment for studying these materials, for instance petrological and binocular microscopes and a specialist library.

Access itself is arranged by appointment with the curator, either in person or by phone, letter or email.
