Museum in the Park, Stroud

Housed in a 17th century wool merchant’s mansion with a smart modern extension, the Museum in the Park in Stroud houses more than 5,000 objects, most of which relate to the local area. They range from dinosaur and mammoth remains to Roman altars, landscape paintings and two of the world’s first lawnmowers!
The museum is not just about objects, but about locality, the beginnings of life here and the people who owned, used, or perhaps made the things now on display. There’s a lively programme of exhibitions and events throughout the year, and facilities include a gift shop and cafe.
