A lovely Edwardian building set in 43 acres of grounds, Bantock House Museum takes you on a journey through the history of Wolverhampton. The house itself is a joy to explore with its cared oak panelled rooms, decorative glass, tiles and period furnishings all inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. And the exhibits gives colour and substance to the past lives of those who have called this city their homes, from jewellery, toys and dolls to Pre-Raphaelite paintings and locally crafted enamels. Children are also well catered for at the museum with plenty of activities for them dotted about the building. After you've soaked in all that the museum has to offer, pop into the courtyard cafe where homemade snacks, drinks and ice cream are served (and the views over the Dutch garden are lovely).

Review of Bantock House Museum & Park
Posted on by Patrick RixType of travel: Solo
A well presented, well kept 2 storey house, originally a farm house. The surrounding park very well kept and well maintained. The informative displays tell much more about the Bantock family. I was Mayor of Witon. The rooms each hold 'something special', and the whole is popular with school pasties. It compares well with 4 miles away Wightwick Manor (National trust).
