Housed in a beautiful 17th Century former coaching inn, Broadway Museum & Art Gallery opened in 2013. The building, now called Tudor House, has been extended and adapted over time, but still retains many original features as well as displaying architectural flourishes which reflect the trends of passing eras. In the mid 19th Century, when people started to travel by train rather than stagecoach, the inn closed, and Tudor House became a farmstead and then a private residence. Afterwards, for 80 years from the 1930s to the early 2000s, it served as the headquarters of H. W. Keil Ltd, a well-known and highly esteemed dealer in antique furniture. Today it is one of a very few 17th Century buildings in Broadway that you can come inside and explore.
The Museum Collection includes fine old English furniture donated by the Keil family, and paintings, porcelain, glassware and other artefacts curated by the Ashmolean Museum Oxford. There are also three stunning special exhibitions every year. Please visit our What’s On page for more details.
Broadway Museum & Art Gallery is a community venture that has been supported by local organisations, businesses and Broadway residents. All have helped to transform an historic building in a beautiful village into a thriving independent museum. We are run by a small team of trustees, staff and our wonderful volunteers. If you are interested in supporting the museum by becoming a Friend, Benefactor or Volunteer please visit our Support Us page.
We would love to welcome you to the Museum, and believe that the Museum offers something to interest and delight people of all ages, young and old alike. For more information about us including our opening times, admission and access visit our Plan Your Visit page.
