Museum of Carpet

If you haven’t already visited this fascinating museum, you must make time to visit!  It’s the perfect way to find out about Kidderminster’s heritage.

Once a thriving carpet factory, the Stour Vale Mill is now home to the only Museum of Carpet in the country. The Museum of Carpet has four galleries that celebrate the history of carpet design, the evolution of carpet manufacture and the heritage of those who worked in local industry. Visit and watch the museum’s talented team of volunteers spin wool, weave Kidderminster stuff and produce Wilton & Axminster rugs on our 19th and 20th century looms. 

You can even try your hand at designing, weaving or exploring Kidderminster’s history, virtually, on our clever interactives!
