  • 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 »
  • Concise museum but tells you enough. Pilgrims Progress is often viewed as a religious but it is also a literary classic. It arose of one of the most interesting points of English history. Worth diggin...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice place to visit and get to know the history of one of the most prolific Christian's author and truly man of God
  • 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.
