Dean Heritage Centre

The Dean Heritage Centre is one of Gloucestershire’s leading attractions. Set across a stunning and fully interactive five acre site, the centre protects and preserves the unique history and heritage of the beautiful Forest of Dean.

With a wide range of things to do and see, including five onsite galleries exploring the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day; a reconstructed Victorian cottage; a charcoal burner’s camp; a woodland playground; chainsaw carving demonstrations; a variety of animals, an onsite gift shop and cafe there’s always something new and exciting to interest, inspire and surprise you.

Our woodland trail based on the much loved children’s book, The Gruffalo.

The Centre offers a range of fun and interactive workshops for schools and groups throughout the year. Learning packages can be tailored to meet all of your school requirements.

With around 20,000 artefacts, five onsite galleries, outdoor displays, a research library and guided tours on offer, the museum tells the story of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day.
