Telling the story of Tudor House Museum Worcester
Last year I was commissioned by Heritage Insider to help in telling the story of Tudor House Museum Worcester.
Originally three dwellings erected around 1520, although foundation stones in the cellar date from the early Medieval period. Tudor House Museum is a fine example of a close-studded timber framed building with the only remaining original embossed ceiling in Worcester.
As you can imagine the building has a rich history and we were tasked with bringing this history to life. Using historical records we tell how life might have been for a cross section of society living and visiting the dwellings.
The graphic design incorporates a range of woodcut illustrations and typography from the Tudor period across a wide range of: interpretation panels; wall graphics and signage. Supported by sounds, artefacts costumes and books to engage and inform visitors of all ages.
A feature of the display is a large timeline which tells the history of the building in context with local Worcester life and global affairs.
