Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum

Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum on Henley Street consists of a visitor centre and the restored half timbered building where Shakespeare was born, with exhibits examining different aspects of Shakespeare's life and times.
The adjacent birthplace dwelling is actually two buildings knocked into one. The northern, smaller and later part was the house of Joan, Shakespeares sister, and it adjoins the main family home, bought by John Shakespeare in 1556 and now returned to its original appearance.
