Very nice combination of a permanent craft show and a rotating craft show. There are also things to purchase. The staff person was very knowledgable and took time to tell us much more about the Barn's history and the cathedral next door.

Although small, and it is £5 to enter, this is a museum for anyone with an interest in Art, Craft and Design. The main display is changed from time to time. The information boards are detailed. The shop sells excellent craft and design items.

So glad we stopped here while in Chipping Campden. While small, the museum provides great insight about local history and culture. The displays are informative and appealing.

We visited after going to The Wilson in Cheltenham. The museums are very different, but this was our favourite. It is interesting to see a museum “work for it”, which the bigger museums are sometimes not forced to do, and their displays can lack inspiration...More
