Preston Park Museum and Grounds

Ambitious Council plans have been unveiled which will see Preston Park Museum transformed into a modern, innovative and inspiring visitor experience with improved facilities throughout the park.

The series of improvements will include:

  • a bold and modern extension to the existing museum, creating a large, flexible exhibition space and visible collection stores
  • park café and toilet refurbishments with the addition of a Changing Places toilet
  • retaining and repurposing the aviary structure
  • car parking extension and upgrades to the main entrance
  • overall improvements to landscaping, paths, lighting and signage
  • showcasing the important story of the Stockton & Darlington Railway close to the original 1825 track-bed

The transformation of Preston Park Museum and Grounds is being funded after the Council secured £20million for improvements to Yarm and Eaglescliffe from the Levelling Up Fund as part of the Stockton South Constituency.

A planning application for the new exhibition, storage building and car park will be submitted on Monday 3 July.
