Dean Heritage Centre

The Museum of the Forest at the Dean Heritage Centre offers some great inside and outside attractions. Learn about the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day, visit the museum and gallery, explore the Gruffalo woodland trail, see inside a reconstructed Forester’s cottage, visit a charcoal burner’s camp and see the working waterwheel, millpond and stream. Children will enjoy the woodland playground plus there is a cafe and gift shop. Set across a stunning and fully interactive five acre site, the Dean Heritage Centre protects and preserves the unique history and heritage of the beautiful Forest of Dean. With a full programme of special events, exhibitions, art shows and educational workshops across the year, it’s a great day out for all the family.
