The objects on display are on loan from the Ashmolean Museum Oxford. They include paintings and furniture from the founding collections of the Ashmolean, given by Elias Ashmole to the University of Oxford in 1683. The displays are of fine and decorative art from the 17th to the 21st centuries over three floors, including local objects such as Sheldon tapestries, Worcester porcelain, Armorial Ceramics of Broadway families, William Morris tiles and Winchcombe Pottery. There are paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Millais and Landseer. The top floor includes a dedicated gallery for temporary exhibitions, providing local artists and community groups with the opportunity for displays, as well as education and outreach programmes.
