Hollytrees Museum

Look out for the dolls' house, it's a model of Hollytrees House. Discover what family life was like for the rich and the poor people. Hear the stories of those who lived and worked in Hollytrees, a beautiful Georgian town house built in 1718.

Meet Isaac Calthrop, a sedan chair carrier, who will fill you in on all the local goings-on.
Listen to Charles Gray Round and his family. Imagine what life was like for Mary Last, their servant.

The museum is free, so make sure you don't miss any of our changing displays.

There is a lift giving level access to all display rooms and visitor toilets - check our access page for further details. The shop is stocked with unique gifts for all tastes and ages.
