Celebrating 100 years of the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum
2022 marks the centenary of the formal opening of the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum.
The Russell-Cotes is a unique place where an extraordinary Victorian couple gathered fantastic art and objects from world cultures in an extraordinary house and then gave it to Bournemouth for their education and enlightenment.
Visitors today are transported to another time and place to experience beauty, quirkiness and an amazing warm and peaceful atmosphere and to be inspired by fine and decorative arts and objects collected from around the world.
This year we have a range of special events including themed late night openings, touring exhibitions, talks and workshops, and more.
There will be music, dancing, tours, craft activities and everything you expect (and some you don’t) from the Russell-Cotes. Check out our What’s On page for event details.
It’s all part of our Centenary Celebrations, marking 100 years since the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum opened its doors to the public. Share your experiences with us on social media #RussellCotes100
