major part of the collections is housed within the Shropshire
Museums Resource Centre in Ludlow, co-located with the public
The fine and decorative art collections comprise some 1000
objects. Most of these are oil paintings, watercolours and
prints, hung on special racking. However, there are also some
decorative arts objects that require storage in boxes.

The Resource Centre has an artist in residence, Angela Gladwell,
who regularly runs courses. However, these are very popular and
so advance booking is required.
Access to the Art collections is
arranged by appointment with the curator, either in person or by
phone, letter or email.
