Learning at Kingswood Heritage museum
The Museum is partly housed in Grade 2 listed buildings dating from the eighteenth century and there are also historic gardens with grottoes of national significance. Displays and our collections cover the heritage of the local area from the origins of Kingswood Forest including coalmining, boot making, and Victorian social life through to World War 2 and the 1950s. A major exhibition focuses on World War 1, and this changes each year to commemorate events which took place between 1914-18.
We encourage all visiting children to develop an enquiry approach and we use artefacts to add tactile experiences and encourage speaking and listening.
