Museums and Galleries

The Broadway Museum & Art Gallery in Broadway was originally built in the seventeenth century as ‘The Angel Inn’, the building, now known as Tudor House, has been extended and adapted over the years but retains original features and architectural flourishes reflecting trends of the passing eras. The house has been both a farmstead and a private residence and was for 80 years, the headquarters for H.W Keil Ltd, one of the leading dealers in antique furniture in the world.

The museum celebrates the life and work of renowned furniture designer Sir Gordon Russell and his company.

Schooled in the Arts and Crafts tradition of the Cotswolds, Gordon Russell believed that the hand crafted tradition of British cabinet making could be fused with the possibilities of the machine, making good design accessible to all.

From the workshops in the village of Broadway, which now houses the museum, the company gained an international reputation and had a profound influence on British industry, design and education.

The Gordon Russell Design Museum charts the life and work of the furniture designer Gordon Russell. Perhaps best known for his work in the Arts and Crafts tradition, and with the development of lasting and stylish ‘utility furniture’ during World War II, the museum features thousands of his drawings and photographs.

Court Barn Museum celebrates the talented designers and craftspeople who have worked in Chipping Campden and the North Cotswolds since the beginning of the twentieth century. This is a story of the Arts and Crafts movement and its legacy, a story of how a small town in a beautiful setting became a gathering place for designers and craftspeople of national and international reputation.

The permanent displays focus on nine individuals or workshops including C.R. Ashbee, Katharine Adams, F.L. Griggs, Gordon Russell, Hart Silversmiths and Robert Welch.

Built in the fourteenth century, the Almonry at Evesham is now an eclectic museum, exploring the history of Evesham and the local area.
