If you are just passing and want to use the coffee shop only (you can see the artist in residence at work too), you are welcome to do so without paying admission... More

Lovely place for a visit, went to view the Wildife Photographer of the Year Exhibition which was really good, some amazing pictures. There is also a cafe and sculptures to look at outsider (weather permitting). They have lots of different exhibitions throughout the year and have a resident artist. If you like wildlife a good place to visit.

We visited to see The Wildlife Photography of The Year exhibition, normally shown at Natural History Museum, we were excited to see it shown in the Cotswolds nearer to where we live, and not having to travel into London. The exhibition was great but the venue is dated and needs some funding so it can upgrade the spaces, and permanent... More

I took my two children here to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year entries which were brilliant. The exhibition was upstairs and I was not told there was a lift just to leave the pushchair at the bottom of the stairs. I therefore had to carry my 10 month old which got a little heavy. The art exhibited downstairs... More

There are some truly beautiful pieces of art in this museum. The detail iof the pieces is absolutely amazing. Such a beautiful setting, we had lunch in the tea room which was very reasonable. Lunch was very nice and served very quickly. All staff very friendly and helpful, really enjoyed our visit.
