Beautiful house full of gorgeous artwork. A real treat and we went for free as it was in the Winter months.
£5 entry fee is worth every penny. The house is the real star here; it's like stepping into another world. Excellent cafe too, which is always a bonus.
A pleasant look around the Russell -Cotes house situated approx. 400 yards from the pier on Bournemouth sea front. £5.00 per adult was paid took approx an hour to look around. Many paintings and sculptures on show along with many items from the families trips abroad. Well worth a visit , café on first floor with reasonable prices.
Like a Tardis.Rooms of first class exhibits.Paintings and memorabilia from foreign visits made by the Russell-cotes family.Well worth a visit.
This is the most amazing museum. An absolute Must See! One of the finest collections of Pre Raphaelite paintings outside of London galleries. The atmosphere in the house is truly magic. Great things for kids- a Japanese inspired workshop going on when I visited this week and an exhibition of William and Evelyn De Morgan ceramics and paintings. Helpful and... More

This was our second visit to the Russell-Cotes and it definitely merits repeat visits. The over-the-top late Victorian house on the cliff is fascinating in itself and the collection is very interesting. We enjoyed the temporary De Morgan exhibition, which is worth seeing. The museum has a very nice cafe too.
I Googled Russell - Coats before our visit. It clearly says there is a children's area - there wasn't. Disabled access was patchy and some areas were not accessible with the wheelchair. The rooms weren't clearly labeled so the children's tick list wasn't easy to follow Was not free access as described Bit of a rip off really as it... More
a very large varied collection which would interest all age groups interested in art and history well worth a visit would recommend especially to schools as the children who were visiting this museum really seemed to be enjoying it
