The Museum in the Park is set in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park in Stroud. Within the historic mansion, the collection tells the fascinating story of the landscape and people of the Stroud District.

Situated in a Grade II listed 17th Century wool merchant’s house; the collection tells the fascinating story of the Stroud District’s rich and diverse history. With over 4,000 objects on display, including dinosaur bones, historical paintings and even one of the world’s first lawnmowers, there is something to spark the interest of all of our visitors!

In addition to the main displays in the mansion house, there is a modern extension which houses a small gift shop and café area, alongside a modern, purpose-built art gallery showing a varied programme of exhibitions. Behind this is the newest addition to the space - a beautiful contemporary Walled Garden.

The Museum is proud to have something to offer visitors of all ages and enthusiastically welcomes families and groups. The displays were designed, as far as possible, with everyone in mind. Many of the rooms contain interactives and toys, and some even sport peep holes into the cabinets at a child-friendly height!

Perhaps you’d like to try your hand at a workshop, pause for thought in the galleries, attend a talk or enjoy a quiz for the whole family. With the diverse collection and exciting events programme there is something on offer for everyone. Plan a visit and discover something new! To discover more about the Collection click here.
