The Museum of Freemasonry in Worcester is accepted as being the second only to the Grand Lodge collection in London. It was founded in 1887 and amongst other artefacts includes a large collection of Masonic ceramics produced from factories in Sunderland, Leeds, Liverpool, Staffordshire and Worcester.

The Museum also contains the internationally famous Shackles Collection of Masonic coins and medals from Europe and the Americas and a very large library of Masonic books and publications.
