Preston Park Museum & Grounds details...

Make a day of it with the family by visiting Preston Park Museum & Grounds. This Stockton-on-Tees social history museum, sited in Preston Hall it was once the home of an industrial magnate, houses beautiful collections displayed in six themed areas, which help to tell the story of Stockton’s past and heritage.

The collections of art and artefacts amount to some 600 pieces of art and sculpture and 1,000 ceramic pieces, all of which are linked in some way to Stockton. Explore the impact the river has had on the area and people and visitors can dress up in period clothing for a photo opportunity in the industrial section.

The centrepiece of the museum is the Victorian Street where visitors can step over a clock in the ground ticking backwards, taking them back to 1895. Shops include the police station, the greengrocer’s and learn what produce people would have had in their shopping basket, check out the printer’s, and watch the blacksmith in his forge.

Outside in the grounds, stroll around the Victorian Walled Garden, the woodland area, the kids will love a spell in the adventure play area or enjoy a ride on the Teesside Small Gauge Railway. Visit the Butterfly House in the summer months.

There is also a skate park and adventure play area for the children.

The entrance price is £15 for a family of two adults and up to three children and under 3s have free entry.
