About the Museum of Royal Worcester
An independent charitable trust looking after the largest collection of Worcester porcelain in the world, over 10,000 objects, and the important factory archive. It was established in 1946 by Charles Dyson Perrins to make this design heritage available to the public as a permanent exhibition. It reopened in June 2018 following a 3-year £1.7M refurbishment project supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund that completely refreshed and reinterpreted the displays.
