Come and explore this hidden gem in the fabulous Cotswolds…

Our Story…

Broadway Museum & Art Gallery, which opened in 2013 is housed in a beautiful 17th Century former coaching inn. The building, built as The Angel Inn is now called Tudor House and has been extended and adapted over the centuries and retains many original features. It is one of a very few 17th Century buildings in Broadway today, that is open to the public. So why not come inside and explore.

Step inside Broadway Museum to discover the story of Broadway, explore our exhibitions and be transported back in time.

We have much to delight you ranging from locally found Fossils to our Story of Wool, which covers Broadway’s prosperity and growth and the decline of the Wool Years in the 16th century.

Learn about the wonders of Coach Travel which erupted in the mid 17th Century and was the purpose for which our very museum was built.

With the arrival of Steam, came a new mode of travel and coaching ceased, the Angel Inn closed and Tudor House (our museum building) became a farmstead and then a private residence. The peace and infinite beauty of this area drew the world famous colony of American artists and writers who visited and worked here in the late 19th century. Explore our exhibition to find out more!

From the 1930s onwards, Tudor House served as the headquarters of H. W. Keil Ltd, a well-known and highly esteemed International dealer in antique furniture. We are thrilled to exhibit some fine pieces from H. W. Keil’s collection.

Complete with museum shop, the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery is the perfect place to include on a visit to The Cotswolds.
