We visited many of the museums in this quarter of Bedford and found this very a interesting part of our history not previously understood, it is now and well worth the view.

The meeting house is a lovely contemplative place, don't miss the brass doors and the Bunyan windows. Had a great cup of tea after and everyone so friendly. The museum is full of interest and has a nice gift shop.

The museum is small but very well laid out and informative. The staff were very knowledgeable, and very friendly. They were full of helpful advice and knew their subject well. Highly recommended.

Just happened on it while walking around Bedford. On entering was met by a very polite gentleman who quickly explained what was available within museum. Never realised the history surrounding Bunyan. Gave donation on leaving.

This is just a small museum but it very interesting and certainly worth visiting. There is a guide for any questions and the exhibits put the life of John Bunyan in context of the situation in the country at that time. Entrance is free. Recommended.
