“Unwelcome”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We visited the museum during half term. The museum itself is lovely however the staff are rude, uninformed, uninterested and unwelcoming. Admittedly our boys are not the quietest however if a museum is targeted at a family market it must expect to welcome excited children. They were repeatedly told to be quiet and rudely told to get off the exhibits (signs would have helped!). The children were not misbehaving they were just trying to enjoy the museum and each others company. A nice day out marred by unnecessary unkindness!

“Small but fun”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Went to museum in the park on wed 23rd April 2014, it has some beautiful grounds and the interior of the museum is just as nice.
It has some quirky little facts and connections referencing the stroud area and it occupied us for a good hour and a half.
My son (5), was sent on an easter hunt by museum staff, who were more than friendly and very helpful.
Great time had by all, definitely a way to fill time gaps.

“Kept the children amused and interested”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

What a lovely little museum, we went to the park to see the hockey but got there really early and dived in here to pass the time.

The kids liked that they could touch things and the adults liked the good explanations on all the exhibits. A bit on the topology, history of the area and how it developed a lot on social history with real life items to view.
