Court Barn Museum

Court Barn Museum is a modest, award-winning museum filled with arts and crafts from artists in the Cotswolds and surrounding areas.

The museum is maintained by the Guild of Handicraft Trust which is committed to showcasing and preserving local arts and crafts. The museum hosts its collection in a disused barn which was remodelled to a spacious place that captures the charming pace of life in the Cotswolds.
