Our Mission

We are here to transport you back in time, bringing history to life. Connecting community, history, art and creativity. Working to achieve financial sustainability through building a strong emotionally connected community around Broadway Museum, protecting and preserving it now and for the future.

Our Manifesto

The place – We are more than a Museum, more than the history of Broadway’s coaching story, more than our telling of the Colony of Creativity that existed in Broadway in the late 19th century. We are more than our volunteer team, our membership and our stakeholders. Our permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, interpretation, talks, events, education, activities for adults, families and groups are all integrated. We are digital and analogue, for visiting and participating, for exploring and for learning. We are an integral part of Broadway’s community and the Broadway visitor offer.

What we do  – Our warm and friendly welcome will put you at ease. We are a local resource. We offer History, Culture, Art and the opportunity to explore all within the context of a traditional and significant building showcasing its history and fully open to explore. We transport you back in time, bring history to life.

How we do it -We are a catalyst for discussion and new ideas, we invite you to spend deep meaningful time. Through dialogue, talks, films, exhibits, creative activities and museum interpretation, our education programme and superb volunteer team, we enliven local history with fun, accessible relevant programming and carefully curated exhibitions.

We experiment – We provide an inspirational, immersive experience transporting one to a different place, nourishing one’s mind, rejuvenating one’s soul. We encourage you to have a joyful, playful, surprising visit. Our aim is to ignite and inspire the next generation by developing an appreciation and passion for culture.

Think globally, act locally – We are here to contribute to a better, kinder world. We champion environmental sustainability, audience diversity and are here for the Broadway community now and through future generations for the benefit of the generations that will inherit the world we leave behind.

We are for everyone – We work hard to engage with the widest audience possible. We welcome your family to ours. Our team helps visitors to feel welcome, safe and at ease.
