Stockwood Museum
Stockwood Museum
This award-winning museum is set beside Stockwood Country Park in Luton. The museum covers 9 centuries of garden history, plus displays on rural life and crafts in Bedfordshire. There are regular craft demonstrations, and a special sculpture garden showcasing the work of Hamilton Finlay, internationally famous sculptor.
The Mossman Collection of horse-drawn vehicles is the largest display of its kind in the UK. Exhibits trace the story of transport before the advent of the motor car, and there is also a section devoted to modern vehicles such as A Luton tram and vintage cars. Visitors can even go for rides in collection vehicles.
