And the Warley Museum is really hosted inside such a phone box. No more, no less, large enough to present the exhibits and small enough to allow only one visitor at a time. The rest will have to wait their turn. And it wasn't just an advertising gimmick, but on October the 8th 2016 this unusual museum was opened by the mayor, several other officials, the locals and, of course, the press. Which provided the best campaign for the new cultural institution which was awaiting it's visitors in Warley. From the very beginning the smallest museum in the world - as the locals proudly say - was thought as being a small lesson of the town's history and cultural identity, so the permanent exhibit contains photographs and documents, personal items and small keepsakes, memorabilia and medals, all managing to build an interesting, diverse and pleasant story. All in a phone box. Which was of course restored, repainted and carefully prepared for the event.
The Warley Museum is still opened and still welcoming it's visitors. And while it might not have been the huge increase in tourists that some might have hoped for, it is an original, funny and nostalgic landmark that you must not miss if you ever come here.
