The Stained Glass Museum

The Stained Glass Museum

The Stained Glass Museum has an internationally significant collection of stained glass, spanning the medieval period to the present day from across the British Isles and Europe. The collection includes over 1,000 stained glass panels from both religious and secular buildings, from all parts of the British Isles. The museum actively collects and preserves fine examples of stained glass and related objects including tools and designs for the benefit of the public. The museum's vision is to be an accessible visitor attraction with a nationally recognised collection that provides learning experiences for all and actively promotes the preservation, study and appreciation of stained glass. 

The Stained Glass Museum collects, preserves, displays and interprets examples of our stained glass heritage to share with diverse audiences, inspire visitors, and deepen our understanding and enjoyment of the art of stained glass.
