The Stained Glass Museum is the only museum dedicated to the art of stained glass in the UK. It offers a unique insight into the fascinating history of stained glass, an art-form that has been practised in Britain for over 1,400 years. The museum’s collection spans from the medieval to modern period, and includes over 1,000 stained glass panels from both religious and secular buildings, as well as a growing collection of preparatory designs, tools and materials. It is particularly renowned for its core collection of 19th and 20th century-stained glass by prominent artists and studios of the time.
