Broadway, Worcestershire (PRWEB UK) 18 March 2013
The oldest public museum in the world, the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology at Oxford is setting up a museum in the beautiful Cotswold village of Broadway. The new museum will be housed in Tudor House on the village High Street - this building pre-dates the Ashmolean.
The target date for the opening is 25 May 2013 and will display objects from the 17th to the 21st centuries over three floors, including objects from the founding Tradescant collections of the Ashmolean Museum. There will also be a gallery space dedicated to rotating exhibitions providing local artists with the opportunity for displays, as well as education and outreach programmes.
The company, Cotswolds.Info, believe it is such an important event for the Cotswolds region that they have been the first to sign up as corporate sponsors to support the project.
