The Stained Glass Museum


Due to the current COVID-19 prevention measure and in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and visitors the Stained Glass Museum is closed. We continue to follow guidance from the government and the Church of England and hope to be able to re-open when safe to do so.

The Stained Glass Museum is located on the upper level of Ely Cathedral in the south triforium, and is accessed by a short spiral staircase. This unique museum is the only one museum dedicated to the art of stained glass in the UK.

The Stained Glass Museum offers an insight into the history and techniques of stained glass, with a collection spanning from the 13th to the 21st centuries. The main gallery displays over 125 examples of stained glass from across the British Isles, Europe and the USA.
