Really enjoyed our visit here. Quirky, interesting and full of local stories. Especially enjoyed the small gardens which were well cared for and had dinosaurs hiding in the plants.

Housed in a beautiful old Cotswold stone building in Woodstock. Kids enjoy the hands on science in one of the rooms and the old fashioned toys and clothes. Lovely cafe and garden. You can occasionally park just outside.

This charming little museum is well worth a visit. I didn't go out into the beautiful garden but I could see from the windows how lovely it was. The displays are small but interesting and I enjoyed my visit very much

We visited Woodstock on a sentimental trip as we used to come here over 40 years ago as we lived locally. Not much has changed. The museum was built a glass atrium on the front to include the cafe since our day which is a...More
