The Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum is an art gallery and local museum in Worcester, the county town of Worcestershire, England.[1]

The museum was originally founded in 1833 by members of the Worcestershire Natural History Society.[2] It is located in a Victorian building in central Worcester, which opened in 1896.[1] The gallery has a programme of contemporary art and craft exhibitions.[3] Displays include the industrial history of Worcester, local geology, natural history, together with 19th- and 20th-century paintings, prints, and photographs.[4] There are also collections of uniforms and medals.
