A dramatic Victorian former mill owner's house set in 36 aces of parkland and ancient woodland, the museum is host to a wide range of unusual and exciting collections of things from around the globe. Once the home of George Sheard from 1875-1902, this Gothic house became a museum in 1911 and was named after its first curator, Walter Bagshaw. His daughter, Violet, continued to travel the world and bring back items for the museum until she was over a hundred years old!
