Found this small museum by chance on a visit to Broadway. Beautifully set out, and totally accessible to anybody with mobility issues. The building is light and warm, with every piece of furniture labelled. I would recommend this place to anybody who enjoys beautiful design.

Very interesting and informative- if art and design are your thing you will enjoy this museum- small but beautifully formed. Staffed by local volunteers that are friendly and informative. Worth the £5 entry fee

A real surprise and wonderful history. Amazing furniture that I couldn’t resist touching with several pieces that I wished I could take home. A smashing museum which is very well organised. The gentleman in charge was very informative, his enthusiasm infectious.

Well worth a visit and walk around the museum - only small, but with some great examples of Russel's work and contemporaneous objects. The short introduction from the volunteers was most informative and made for a very interesting visit.
