Elgar Birthplace Museum

`Elgar Birthplace Museum

One of England's greatest composers, Sir Edward Elgar, was born on 2 June 1857, in this pretty country cottage near Worcester in the heart of England.

After his death in 1934, Elgar's daughter Carice set up a Museum here, as her father had wished. In 2000, the new Elgar Centre was added to the Museum, to display even more treasures from this wonderful collection.

Today we welcome visitors from all over the world, to enjoy a fascinating insight into Elgar's life and music, family and friends, musical development and inspirations.
