  • It's a beautifully refurbished of a historical building near the river Ouse, Bedford. John Bunyan Museum¬†is a must visit in Bedford, which primarily dedicated to the life, times and works of John Bunyan (1628-88), an English writer and Puritan preacher, who best remembered as the author of the Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress.¬†Previously the Church was a barn in an orchard in Mill Street. Then in 1672 the congregation bought it & where the Church remains to this day on this site with the name of Bunyan Meeting. Bunyan began his work as a minister of this Church in the same year.
  • A lovely small museum with interesting objects and good displays relating to Bunyan's life and work. I particularly liked the panels which give you a brief summary of The Pilgrim's Progress story. Very glad we went here.
  • small but does have plenty of interesting facts about John banyan. good staff.you need to check openings.
  • A small museum, however it more than makes up for this in the amount of exhibits and the knowledge of the staff, who are always willing and able to answer any questions. The exhibits are very well laid out and informative, whilst they also host a range of summer holiday events for children to engage them
  • Thoughtfully put together small museum. Well worth a visit. Although entry is free, donations are welcome.
