  • This is a real hidden gem. Small but full of interesting pieces of Gustav Holst's life and Regency to Victorian furniture, it exceeded our expectations for a rainy morning. The staff were very friendly too.
  • A small but interesting museum run by enthusiastic volunteers.
  • Well put together. Knowledgeable volunteers.
  • Excellent museum on a manageable scale with enthusiastic and welcoming staff. Varied, interesting and informative on many levels. Easy access to Pittville Park and the Sudeley Arms.
  • Great. Only fault is questionable use of comic sans.
