Entry is a little pricey but this is an interesting place, so recommended for an hours visit. The museum needs some support

This is ok but frankly, there is a distinct paucity of artifacts. Save your cash and go eleswhere. There is only so much one can do invirtually empty rooms...

Interesting introduction by the staff , with artefacts from the 16th to the 19th century, and a special exhibition on paintings by John Singer Sargeant

The Ashmolean Museum in Broadway is a jewel. It is housed in what had been a home in the 1600's and has been very well maintained through several remodels. Looking at the architecture of the house is as entertaining and educational as the exhibits. The Ashmolean curator has done an excellent job of selecting pieces from various eras that reflect art and crafts through the ages. The furniture used for the displays are beautiful as well. We happened to be there during a special exhibit of drawings and water colors by Singer Sargent which were a real treat as they showed the range of his talent in several media. That said, the permanent exhibit is worth a visit any time.

First impressions matter, and the first person we were met with really set the tone of the visit for us. A very helpful, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable volunteer asked us if we wanted to know a little about the building and its history before we started our tour of the various rooms. We're very pleased that we said 'yes'. Her explanation of the history of the building, its various occupants, and the variety of things to look out for on our tour was really worthwhile and much appreciated. The Singer Sargent exhibition was good, and the eclectic mix of curiosities on display were given enough space to be enjoyed. On the negative side: the building, being listed, isn't able to provide wheelchair access, and the number of stairs (some of which are uneven) may be a problem for the elderly.
