The Elgar Birthplace Museum gives a fascinating insight into the life and music, family and friends, development and inspirations of Sir Edward Elgar, one of England's greatest composers.

Following her father's wishes, Elgar's daughter Carice set up a Museum in the country cottage where he was born on 2nd June 1857. The Birthplace Cottage is set in the heart of the countryside Elgar loved and took great inspiration from.

With the growth of worldwide interest in Elgar's music, and the addition of many more treasures to the unique collections here, the Museum was expanded in 2000 by the opening of the Elgar Centre, providing more display space and better facilities for visitors.

The Elgar Birthplace Museum has a busy events programme including special exhibitions, talks and concerts. The Museum shop has an unrivalled range of CDs, books, sheet music, scores as well as an attractive selection of souvenirs.

The Elgar Birthplace Museum is situated 3 miles west of Worcester, signposted off the A44. From the M5, use junction 7 and the A4440.
