Set in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park is the Museum in the Park. The collection tells the story of the Stroud Valleys and the wider district, giving you the chance to find out about the people who lived and worked here, from the earliest settlers through to the present day. With over 4,000 objects on display, including dinosaur bones, historical paintings and even one of the world’s first lawnmowers, there is something to spark the interest of all visitors!

Why visit the Museum in the Park?

Within the historic mansion, the collection tells the fascinating story of the landscape and people of the Stroud District.

In addition to the main displays in the mansion house, there is a modern extension which is home to a small gift shop and cafe, as well as a modern art gallery showing a varied programme of exhibitions (check out the website for the latest events and collections!). Behind this is the newest addition to the space – a beautiful contemporary Walled garden.
