Welcome to search the collections

Cheltenham's Arts and Crafts Movement collection of furniture, textiles, ceramics, carvings, silver and jewellery is recognised as an outstanding collection of international importance. Please see our website www.artsandcraftsmuseum.org.uk for detailed information.

Cheltenham's history is also well represented, and in addition there are Dutch and British paintings spanning four centuries, oriental collections of pottery and costume, and archaeological treasures from the neighbouring Cotswolds.

Here are 500 objects selected from the Museum's collection. Try clicking on one of the themes and search the collection.

Limitations of space and the fragile nature of some of the Museum's objects mean that not everything is on show. The items that are kept in store may be seen by appointment. Please make a note of the accession number, found at the end of the object description, and contact us if you wish to see a particular object.

You can also search for all our continental European paintings.

Nearly 500 images from our collections can also be found at www.bridgeman.co.uk. Go to Advanced search and search for Cheltenham.
