The Bowes Museum, built in the style of a French chateau, opened in 1892. Purpose built by founders John and Joséphine Bowes, it offers one of Britain’s most fascinating Museum experiences.
Housing some of the best examples of European fine and decorative arts, vast refurbishments have led to new galleries being created so that more items can be on display, some of which have never been seen before.
It curates its own acclaimed exhibition programme and stages family orientated events. Situated within beautiful grounds, the Museum offers free entry to its own Café Bowes and Shop.
