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

Objects of local and social history number approximately 10,000 items. These are the everyday things used by people through the years that tell us a lot about the lives of our ancestors. They range from tools to costumes, from magic lanterns to sewing machines.
