TINY!

One important thing you should realize is that the museum is TINY – it’s basically a single hall, one part of which hosts the permanent exposition of hardly a dozen displays and... read more

We adore Chipping Campden, and it was a treat to find a new place to visit within this beautiful Cotswolds village. The museum is set in a sensitively restored barn, and showcases, through the various displays, the work of the craftspeople, artists, designers and architects who have lived and worked in Chipping Campden and surrounding areas during the time of...

For what there is to see at the museum I think it should be free with a voluntary contribution not around £6 each.

I thought I'd pay this place a visit as it is surrounded by spectacular examples of cotswolds architecture and presumed this was how one gained access to it. Upon paying 11 pounds entry for me and my wife I was shocked to discover it is in fact possibly the smallest museum in the whole world. It boasts amongst it's few... More

One important thing you should realize is that the museum is TINY – it’s basically a single hall, one part of which hosts the permanent exposition of hardly a dozen displays and the other even smaller part hosts temporary exhibitions. The exhibits are interesting if you are into A&C but the quantity of them does not warrant a dedicated trip... More

Interesting exhibition about the local Arts and Crafts movement of the 1930s and before. Well laid out and informative. Staff very friendly and helpful. As it was half term there was a children's activity session going on.

This is a gem, intelligently assembled and interpreted, with a suitable bookshop. Allow plenty of time for Chipping Campden generally, and ensure that Court Barn is on your programme. Don't rush, imbibe and feel enriched. We have these craftspeople much to thank for.

We visited to see the Arts and Crafts silver and were not disappointed. The receptionist was knowledgable and passionate about the museum and this enhanced the visit. We thought the entrance fee was reasonable for the quality of the exhibits and information. The opportunity to see local artists current work was a bonus. Plan your visit though as the museum...

We were welcomed warmly by the lady on reception and she gave us a lot of background information as to what to look for, before leaving us to browse on our own. This is only a small gallery but the locally made jewellery and notebooks on sale are very beautiful and are totally unique and for a very reasonable price.

It's not a very big museum but the staff were very friendly and helpful and we spent quite a bit of time there. The exhibits are well planned and there are some fascinating videos that show you how items such as a hand-printed book or a decorative silver goblet are made.

Part of the display was free but the rest was over £4 just to look at a relatively small display. Unless you're particularly interested in this topic, I wouldn't waste your money.
