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.

I would not put this at the top of my list while visiting Chipping Campden. But, it's interesting... and if you don't know anything about the Arts and Crafts movement there, it's an easy way to get a crash course. Nice folks running the place. Don't need to much time to go through it. If you want to find some... More

Brilliant place to shop for local artists goods - we brought a gorgeous glass pendant for a gift for a frien and it was a noe - off at a reasonable price.

A well-restored building and pleasant staff simply don't make up for the basic flaw of this museum - it doesn't have enough of interest to make a trip worthwhile. They have tried to make up for the lack of exhibits by interactive screens but anybody interested in Arts & Crafts would be very disappointed by the absence, for example, of... More

A bijou museum showing highlight pieces from members of the Arts and Crafts movement that flourished in Chipping Campden. Well worth a visit; you'll need only an hour or so.
