Second visit to this interesting museum in beautiful Chipping Campden. Anyone with an interest in the Arts and Crafts movement should come here. Clearly set out information about the various craftsmen and artists. Especially interesting now with the exhibition on Ashbee- his life and work. Display of some of his exquisite silverwork.

This is where Arts and Crafts began in the area of England. Small museum but many nice pieces and information on display. A good point for information.

Interesting display of how a particular art movement was formed, developed further, relocated to Chipping Campden before finally settling at its current location, part of the beautiful surroundings of what used to be the wealthy estate of a local family. An interesting range of modern art and craft work to view, alongside explanations on how different artists and craftsmen and... More

If you want to see the best exhibition of Arts and Crafts then visit the museum in Cheltenham. .and it's free. As for this one...not worth it.

This is a small but detailed history of the group of artists and craftsmen and women who were attracted to Chipping Camden at the end of the C19th and the early part of the C20th. The displays are fully explained and there are some superb examples of original work. Well worth an hour and a half of intense study!

Last minute choice to visit, glad we did. Only small but well worth it to find out about the Craft and Design movement operating in the last century. Staff were all friendly and knowledgeable. Fascinating info. on Robert Welch, who have a shop in town.

If you are in Chipping Camden do not miss this wonderful museum. It features not only the Arts and Crafts movement but also the history of the village. Lots of information presented in traditional fashion as well as high-tech presentations on screen. A very good little shop sells interesting items. We strongly recommend a visit.

Some lovely displays very well presented. Knowledgeable staff we really enjoyed the silver and jewellery. There are some lovely items to buy including a good selection of books. Chipping Camden is a beautiful Cotswold town one of our favourites.

History of local artists and why they set up around this area. Beautiful pieces highlighting the skills and well worth a visit. CR Ashbee, Gordon Russell, Hart Silversmiths and Robert Welch have work displayed here. The jewellery work by Ashbee is stunning. Small museum next to beautiful church - which is worth visiting.
