The Higgins Art Gallery & Museum, Bedford
The Higgins Bedford reopened in June 2013
after a major redevelopment project. The Higgins Bedford showcases
wonderful and varied collections including the Cecil Higgins
Collection of fine and decorative arts, with its world-class
watercolour and print collections and unique groups of work by the
designers William Burges and Edward Bawden.
The art gallery and museum explores the
inspiring stories of local people and encourages a ‘sense of place’
for Bedford and the surrounding area. Using collections of
archaeology, social history and ethnography, The Higgins Bedford
shows how the town of Bedford has developed.
