More about the Holburne Museum
The Grade I listed villa, originally built as a hotel, is home to an intimate collection of 17th- and 18th-century paintings and decorative art. At the back of the original building is a bold ceramic and glass extension designed by Eric Parry, looking out onto pleasure gardens where Jane Austen once walked. As well as doubling the museum's display space, it houses the museum's restaurant – tables spill out onto the lawn in good weather.
The museum celebrates its centenary in 2016 with an exciting programme of historical exhibitions and contemporary commissions.
