The museum contains an interactive environment rich in history, while encapsulating the architecture and social history through its town centre location. The building is prominently located within the historic walled town of Ludlow, forming a key focal point at the head of Broad Street.

The Butter cross occupies the main approach to the town centre from the south, forming a pivotal point on the dramatic spatial progression that leads from Ludford Bridge via Broadgate to the Ludlow Castle gates. It reveals the town’s proud architectural heritage to visitors and signposts them to other heritage venues in Ludlow to help visitors get the most from their stay.

The Heritage Interpretation Centre will engage its users with a unique view of the surrounding buildings from the semi-circular window, which offers a stunning view along Broad Street’s historic shops and dwellings and the surrounding countryside.

Information is delivered through a variety of different platforms, including cinema-type displays and interactive exhibits, as well as more traditional interpretation panel displays.

The museum is located at the centre of Ludlow, in the upper rooms of the Butter cross.
