MOTHERS can enjoy free admission to a museum at Hartlebury Castle on Mother's Day.

Worcestershire County Museum, which is housed within the historic Hartlebury Castle, near Kidderminster, will welcome in mums for free on Sunday, March 26, between 11am and 5pm.

The museum has more than 1,000 years of history to explore. Items on show include horse drawn vehicles, social history, costume, toys, archaeology and a nationally significant collection of Gypsy caravans.

Displays cover many aspects of Worcestershire life including the county's geology, the importance of water to the region and agriculture heritage.

Rachel Robinson, manager at the county museum, said: "The county museum is excited about being able to reward all the hard working mums of Worcestershire with a free day out on their special day and a chance to discover more than 1,000 years of history in the evocative setting of Hartlebury Castle."

The museum's cafe, James' Kitchen, will also be offering afternoon teas for £14.95 per person.

For free admission, all mums must be accompanied by a child.
