Our Purpose

The Stained Glass Museum collects, preserves, displays and interprets examples of our stained glass heritage to share with diverse audiences, inspire visitors, and deepen our understanding and enjoyment of the art of stained glass.

Our Vision

Our vision builds on the Museum’s success over the last 40 years and sets out our ambition to become a nationally designated collection, with a dynamic learning programme and high-quality visitor experience.

The Stained Glass Museum plays a unique role in providing a bridge between existing artistic, heritage and research organisations and the public, and in preserving and advocating for our stained glass heritage. These three fundamental aspects; engaging diverse audiences, collaborating with creative communities, researchers and partnering organisations in the sector, collectively form the foundations of our vision 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.
