Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum was built in 1897 in its first form as a home for Sir Merton and Lady Annie Russell-Cotes. It was gifted to Bournemouth Borough Council with its contents of a substantial art collection, furniture, ceramics, sculpture and world cultures collection.

This beautiful and highly decorated house is nationally important for its interior and requires continual work to maintain it at the standard achieved through our recent refurbishment.

The Café at the Russell-Cotes turns towards present times with an emphasis on contemporary makers; the floor, furniture, tapestry, tableware and glass screen have all been designed and made by artists from the southern region of England.. A continuing changing exhibition programme is ongoing in Art Galleries 1 and 2 and also our Temporary Exhibition space.
