Museum Tours

Every Wednesday and Saturday in April and May – Tours begin at 11.30am and 1.30pm.

Tour Duration: Approximately 30-40 minutes

Our volunteer-led tours are a unique way of exploring the highlights of our Museum. These tours provide a wonderful introduction to our collection and will give an insight into the fascinating stories behind the oldest Methodist building in the world. Step into the preachers’ rooms above the Chapel to see John Wesley’s bedroom and study, discover the earliest membership book, and try on costumes from our dressing up cupboard.

“Really appreciated our tour guide. Brilliant Museum, superbly done – a real credit to the New Room”.
