Covid-19 update: Our new opening hours are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 11am-4pm for pre-booked visits. 1 hour time slots are available to book via the museum website in advance, enabling visitors to enjoy exclusive access to the museum collections for up to 6 people per booking.
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 displays cover a rich period of 20th century design, from Arts and Crafts to Modernism and beyond, accompanied by a changing programme of exhibitions and events. The museum shop brings the story up to the present day, showcasing the work of contemporary designer-makers.
