Visit our new Museum 

 
 
This is a highly interactive museum that opened in 2017. It tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and eighteenth-century Methodism and its relevance today.

Many of the hands-on displays are designed to be accessible to children as well as adults. They have been produced by Cod Steaks, a local Bristol company who are used to working not only in museums but also in television, films and theme parks.

Among the displays are ones on eighteenth-century Bristol, the slave trade, the role of lay preachers, medical self-help, eighteenth-century education, and the spread of Methodism across Britain and America. A number of the rooms present issues of social justice and other concerns raised by John Wesley - all of these still have a relevance to the world today. Prepare to be challenged as well as entertained and informed!

The museum is housed in a series of twelve rooms, which were created in 1748 to accommodate the Wesleys and the early Methodist preachers. An audioguide produced in conjunction with Bristol Young Vic provides the opportunity to hear early Methodists describing aspects of their lives. There is also an audioguide designed for use by children.

Visitors will see John Wesley’s study and bedroom and the main living room of the preachers as part of their visit and children have the opportunity to dress up in the latter.
