Welcome to Preston Park Museum & Grounds
The adventure starts here!

Art Fund Museum of the Year 2013 finalistNestled alongside the River Tees, Preston Hall, a former Georgian gentleman’s residence and former home of industrial magnate Robert Ropner, houses a varied collection of Teesside’s treasures.

Walk through the impressive doors to find out more about those who lived there, the varied museum collection, the vital role the mighty River Tees has played throughout history and the leisure time pursuits that were just as popular then as they are today. Step over a clock spinning backwards to emerge in our Victorian street… why not take afternoon tea and sample some sweets and cakes from times gone by?

From a stroll in Quarry Wood Nature Reserve to a circuit around the new adventure play area or a wander around the Victorian walled kitchen garden – there’s something for everyone to explore in the grounds themselves.

The museum is a member of the Family Explorers Network.Sign up free to Family Explorers North East for great day out ideas, exclusive offers, reviews and venue news.
