Munitions laying on an Union Jack - from an album of photos from TH & J Daniels

In 2015 the Museum has been telling stories around how the War stimulated creativity, innovation and technology.

From September to November we are telling the stories of technology and innovation in the factories of the Stroud District with our foyer case exhibition Stroud Industries Fight Back! You can find out more about that here.


Other exhibitions on this theme have included:
One Man's War - shown in January and February

From the Kitchen to the Factory was a display focussing on the women who went to war - this was told in March through a collaboration with local artist Sue Brown - this collaboration will go on across the World War One commemoration period, and you can find out more here.

Also in March we looked to our own collections for the story of Redler with an exhibition in Gallery 2 which ran throughout March.

The story of Alexander Paice and folding furniture was explored through a bite-size Foyer display across the summer months.


In 2016 the Museum will be telling the stories of the fighting men under our theme The World at War - find out more here.

We are hoping to work with the local history societies and other interested parties to tell these stories - if you have something to contribute please contact us
