Overview

On the upper floor of this elegant city mansion with its picturesque garden (16th to 19th century) the oeuvre of the versatile British artist Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) is on display on the top floor. Brangwyn was both a graphic artist and a painter, as well as a designer of carpets, furniture and ceramics. The ground floor is the setting for temporary plastic art exhibitions.

This is not a significant museum. There are a few oddities downstairs. There is a Frank Brangwyn exhibition upstairs. This is an OK museum but I would not go out of my way to visit.

Upper floor devoted to works by British artist Frank Brangwyn, whilst ground floor has some historical art & artefacts. Loved the interactive display showing an old entomology illustrated book. Mainly a venue for hard core art lovers.

This small museum has a permanent exhibition of works by Frank Brangwyn, who worked with William Morris for a while. He was born in Bruges, which is why it's there, I assume. We really enjoyed the exhibition, which was sympathetically and clearly laid out, and...More
