Welcome Back! We are excited to announce that Broadway Museum & Art Gallery will reopen its doors on Tuesday 8th September 2020! The museum will remain open Tuesday to Saturday (10:30am – 4.00pm) until our winter closure in late December.

In addition to our permanent exhibitions about Broadway’s history, the world-famous colony of American artists and writers who visited and worked here in the late 19th century, Coaching Days, Prosperity from Wool and the Cabinet of Curiosities we are pleased to announce a new selling exhibition:

Vera (Artist Unknown)

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. 30% of every sale will go to support the Museum.

The exhibition explores the depiction of beauty, style and fashion using a superb selection of original drawings, paintings, gowns and fashion accessories. It opens a unique window on this influential period using international artworks overflowing with elegance and humour. A 1920s-style evening dress made for Joanna Lumley for a stage role, is just one of the beautiful items on display. By buying one of these superb fashion items, drawings or paintings, you can help our museum to thrive. And, yes, the Lumley dress is for sale!  The exhibition will run until Sunday, 31st May 2021.

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

We take the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and visitors very seriously and all appropriate Covid-19 measures – safe distancing, marked flows and sanitising arrangements – will be in place. We ask that all payments are made contactless (no cash) during this time.
