A 'must do' if you are in or near Stroud. As well as looking at the park visit this super little museum, full of fascinating facts and artefacts. Good for all the family.

This is a really well planned museum, with a number of galleries, each progressing from the other. Unexpectedly good and with really helpful staff. The only problem we had was in finding it after parking near the leisure centre but that was a minor problem....More

Great little calm venue with cute walled garden at the rear, ideal for quiet peaceful relaxing time. Wonderful wild plants all arranged around a wheelchair friendly sloping path and top shady lawn.

Nice location in Stafford Park. A good sized museum with friendly and informed staff who were very helpful. The children enjoyed doing the trails and quizzes which was educational while keeping them entertained. Recommend you read Lawrence Lee's school report in the school room!

Set within a large historic estate and gardens, this Museum always has fabulous exhibitions, activities for kids and families, and now a superb walled garden and visitors centre. I cannot recommend this civic space and art centre more highly. It is great for kids of...More

We're really proud of this museum and its recently developed garden. My husbands mother was a volunteer at the old museum in Stroud and the 'new' museum is a credit to all those who have worked so hard to make it brilliant! The textiles exhibition...More
