Discover our permanent exhibitions about Broadway’s history including the world-famous colony of American artists and writers who visited and worked here in the late 19th century, prosperity from wool and its role as a coaching stage. In addition, we are pleased to announce a new selling exhibition:

“Beauty, Style & Fashion: 20th Century Paintings, Drawings & Costumes”

An exhibition of both original art, depicting fashion of the period 1900 – 1960, as well as clothes and accessories of the same period, this is an opportunity to view and purchase unique works of immaculate provenance. The collection is the property of a retired art dealer, and the costumes are courtesy of Fashion Fandango.

Visiting the museum is also an opportunity to step inside and explore a beautiful Cotswold stone Grade II* listed building. Complete with museum shop, the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery is the perfect place to include on a trip to The Cotswolds this Autumn.

This community Museum has a memorandum of understanding with the Ashmolean Museum Oxford. They generously supported the setting up of the museum with its expertise and whose staff provide advice and guidance and curate a number of our special exhibitions.

Broadway is a 30 minute drive from both Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon and just 20 minutes from junction 9 of the M5.
