Our Vision

The Stained Glass Museum is working on plans to develop a national centre for the discovery, appreciation and preservation of stained glass. Our Vision Document (PDF) has been produced as part of the recent 'Windows onto the Future project' funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It sets out the Stained Glass Museum’s journey so far, and our vision for the future.

Our ambition is to become a nationally designated collection, with a dynamic learning programme and high-quality visitor experience.

Our overall 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.

Our Mission

We seek to create multiple opportunities to see and experience, learn and create stained glass in a unique environment.
We exist to excite and inspire, to enrich lives, and provide a memorable experience for generations of visitors.
We aim to keep the inspiration and appreciation of stained glass alive in the 21st century and beyond; to make stained glass accessible and relevant to diverse and changing audiences and their needs.
We will work with partners in various sectors to actively promote the art of stained glass in Britain; to share knowledge and skills, and to provide a bridge between existing artistic and heritage organisations and the public.
