Bushey Museum and Art Gallery Bushey Museum and Art Gallery

Bushey Museum and Art Gallery tells the story of Bushey, its people and its unique artistic history. The Museum’s art collection is the largest in Hertfordshire and is mainly from the 19th & 20th centuries. The Museum Trust was founded in 1983 with the aim of collecting and safeguarding this very considerable artistic heritage of Bushey.

The Friends of Bushey Museum support the Museum through fundraising activities and has a varied programme of meetings and events.

The Museum holds a large collection of items relating to Sir Hubert von Herkomer RA and his world-renowned Art School. There are also displays of the Lucy Kemp-Welch Memorial Trust collection, including many of Lucy's superb paintings of horses. There are also many works from the Monro Circle of artists. Archives relating to these collections, as well as works from their Art Schools and other Bushey art schools are held in the Museum's Local Studies Centre.
