- Explore the history and discover the ambitions of the two families that made Preston Park what it is today – the Fowlers (Georgian era) and the Ropners (Victorian era).
- See the famous The Dice Players painting by Georges de La Tour. Parts of this gallery are temporarily closed until summer 2022, whilst we transform the space.
- Discover how life has changed for people of Stockton over the last 200 years, including toys as well as everyday household appliances and what they did for entertainment.

- The shops on the Victorian Street are run by volunteers and whilst we do try to ensure they are open, there may be some occasions when they cannot due to availability.
