    Small free museum, with a shop, and really enthusiastic, friendly members of staff who really made this museum. Interesting pieces though such as a handmade tin violin and Bunyan's pulpit.  more »

  • I took my family & my parents (in their 70s) here for an hour. Excellent value for money (donation only). Children had a worksheet to complete during the visit to prevent boredom. I didn't realise quite how much John Bunyan & Pilgrims Progress was a part of our local history. I learned that Pilgrims Progress is the second most widely translated book in the world, available in over 170 languages. Only the Bible beats it! Well worth a visit.
  • Well put together museum with friendly and helpful staff
  • Fine museum. Very interesting and helpful in learning about John Bunyan. Hunt for the other Bunyan sites and plaques throughout the city.
  • very good :)
