John Bunyan Museum

The Bunyan Museum tells the story of this renowned author, pastor and preacher. Visitors to the museum are able to take a walk through Bunyan’s life and times.

On entering the museum, visitors are greeted with a three-dimensional model of Bunyan towards the end of his life. Visitors are invited by Bunyan to join him as he looks back over his life. The periphery of the room is made up by a series of tableaux, room sets and reconstructions, interspersed with information points.
