Museum Late: Beside the Seaside

Slideshow Shim

Beside the Seaside

A late evening opening celebrating the culture of the seaside.

The Russell-Cotes is a wonderful survival of Bournemouth’s heritage as a Victorian seaside resort, and we have a large collection of beach scenes in painting and sculpture.

Expect live music, spotlight talks on our seaside artworks, an object-handling session with real museum artefacts, cocktails, a live painting demonstration with the Classical Art Academy, and more…

You can even book an evening Afternoon Tea to enjoy on the Terrace, with views over the sea.

5pm – 8pm.

Entertainment is spread throughout the evening, so drop in at any time to enjoy it.

Standard admission charges apply, visit Admission Prices for further details. Cafe closes 7.30pm.


Third Thursday Club 

Our Museum Lates take place every third Thursday of the month, exploring a different theme each time. Why not consider joining the Friends of the Russell-Cotes, which includes free admission to the museum for a year, including to each of the monthly Third-Thursday-Club Museum Lates?
