  • Interesting museum with attached walled garden. We only looked at the art exhibition, will see the rest next time. The cafe was nice and quiet but seemed limited to coffee and cake.  more »

  • Well worth a regular visit! Interesting permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. Not forgetting the friendly and helpful staff and the wonderful walled garden.
  • I spent 2 enjoyable hours here, and was impressed by the variety in exhibits and collection for a local museum. I especially liked the upstairs rooms with exhibits on local industries and social history. Sometimes I felt more information could be given on the object labels to explain their significance, but extra info is provided on laminated guides in each room. Overall, a fantastic place. The shop at the end is great too, especially the local artists items.
  • Really enjoyable place to wonder round and learn the history of Stroud through the ages. Fun quizzes for the children to do and friendly staff to assist
  • My wife, daughter and grandchildren visited the museum on Friday 2nd June. What a great little museum. So much to see and do for all ages and all free. I could have spent hours looking at the variety of fantastic exhibits there to see. Everything was very well presented and the guides/helpers very supportive. I have one observation which has negative implications and it concerns the quiz available for the children. Many, mine included, rushed around the exhibits looking for letters on shells and the vast majority completely missed the fantastic learning opportunities open to them. Why do this when there is so much to see and we should be encouraging children to look and think. This game spoilt it for my wife and I who would have loved to engage with our grandchildren on the artifacts, pictures and reading materials there for them to see. Please do not deflect from what is excellent and dumb down what could have been an educational and excitingly stimulating experience so obviously available for them.
  • Fascinating local museum and art galleries in fantastic 19th century park. Worth a return visit, swimming pools and leisure centre available too.
