Nature in Art opened its doors to the public in May 1988 as the world’s first museum and art gallery dedicated exclusively to fine, decorative and applied art inspired by nature. The growing collection spanning 1500 years from over 60 countries and cultures by over 600 artists and makers is housed in a fine Georgian mansion dating from the mid-1700s situated just outside Gloucester. The collection reflects the exciting diversity of work produced by artists inspired by nature through the centuries.

With regularly changing displays of the permanent collection and a vibrant programme of temporary exhibitions and artist residencies, Nature in Art is international in scope, appeal and stature. The museum has twice been specially commended in the National Heritage Museum of the Year Awards and is a must for anyone interested in world-class art, nature and heritage.

With a dedicated arts education department and a purpose built education centre, Nature in Art provides year round activities and events including, children’s activity days, family fun days, adult art courses, evening talks and demonstrations.

The Hayward Coffee Shop is the perfect place to take a coffee or lunch break whilst enjoying views of the beautiful surroundings. Light lunches are served between 12 - 2pm.
